TASTE & FLAVOR: Fresh Wahoo (Ono) is a mild-tasting fish with a firm and lean texture. The white flaky meat has been compared to chicken for its flavor.
PREPARATION: Our #1 choice for fish tacos, it's easy to prepare and a great fish for the whole family. Often grilled or fried Ono is a delicious choice for any occasion. Wahoo is a very lean fish that benefits from cooking methods that don't dry out the meat.
FISHING METHOD: Longline
CAUGHT IN: San Diego, CA
BOAT: F/V Anthony G
FISHING SEASON: Year Round
HOW IT COMES: All of our fish is fresh, never frozen and comes delivered in gallon ziplock bags.
STORING: If you choose to store your fish in the refrigerator we suggest consuming it within 3 days of delivery. If you do not plan on eating the fish within 3 days we suggest freezing it immediately after delivery to ensure freshness. Before freezing we suggest removing the fish from the bag pat dry then place in a vacuum sealed bag or tightly saran wrap and place in freezer safe ziploc bag before freezing. To defrost run cold (not hot) water over the bag for 5-10 minutes. Defrosting in the refrigerator is the second best option
SUSTAINABILITY: Please refer to NOAA's FishWatch.gov for more information on this species fishery.
NOTES: For deliveries each pound is a weight estimate, it is not exact. We do our best to get it as close to the ordered weight as possible. Each cut of fish is about 1-2lbs in size and we suggest ordering at least 2lbs for the best cut of fish.
