Frostmark(TM) Launches Its Long Line Wild Caught Cod and Haddock Fillets: From Hook to Cook
Southstream Seafoods, Inc., leader in the frozen seafood importer business, is proud to introduce our long line wild caught cod and haddock fillets to the foodservice industry and retail consumer. Nearly 80% of Americans prefer wild caught seafood1. We have foreseen the need for a high quality "harvested from the wild" 2 replacement to the Iceland Fishery. In 2007 and 2008, there will be an additional 30% quota cut in Iceland that directly affects all supplies from Iceland, including frozen at sea products to the US market. A solution for a very high quality replacement to the Iceland fishery products is imperative as this will greatly increase demands in the cod and haddock sectors.
Our years of expertise have allowed us to research a very attractive alternative to this dilemma by using long line caught cod and haddock. Long line is a method of fishing that is of a higher value. It is the process by where hooks are set off lines and the fish are caught individually. The increase in quality from long lining over other methods of catch is that the fish are not enduring additional stress or pressure. The fish is frozen within hours of catch maintaining firm texture and mild flavor and all our fillets are hand cut with attention to detail.
