Wild Alaskan True Cod

 

Wild Cod is one of the most prolific wild fish in the ocean. What makes ours special is it's caught humanely in some of the cleanest water in the world off the coast of Alaska. Our Wild Alaskan True Cod is a gem you can add to your diet more regularly as it is more affordable than other wild caught fish due to it's plentiful supply & catch.  

Wild Alaskan Cod are plentiful and live in some beautiful country!


Cod needs no introduction but most cod on the market today is farm fish. Wild True Cod is better! It's better for you and and better, when fished responsibly, for our planet.

Kwee-Jack, who supplies our salmon & halibut, also supplies our true cod. Kwee-Jack (Kvee-Shock, named after the Alaskan river; Kvichak) is a highly respectable company made up of a few friends from Wisconsin, Montana, & Pennsylvania that go to Alaska to fish for a hobby 6 weeks out of the year. They're our kind of people and we're proud to work with them.

Responsible fishing

Most Cod fishing done today is done using drag nets. Drag nets are aptly named as they drag the bottom of the ocean, scooping up cod as well as a host of other non-target species. Drag net fishing not only bruises the fish from the weight of all the fish in the net but it also greatly disturbs the ocean floor and it also kills a lot of other fish in the process.

As you'd expect, Northstar has much higher standards than that... one that not only preserves and protects the ocean and other fish but also preserves the eating quality of the cod that are caught. Kwee-Jack uses a method called Long Lining. Long Lining is simple a series of hooks on a fishing line that are baited for cod, cast out, and reeled in. Once caught, the fish are taken to the processing boat where they're cleaned, packaged, and frozen within 12 hours of the catch. Long Lining isn't a good way to catch a lot of fish but it's the only way to catch these fish responsibly.

Alaska is an incredible place and we want to preserve it's bounties for generations to come.
