Patagonian Toothfish

Patagonian Toothfish is a bottom dwelling species that inhabit depths of 300-2000m in areas of submarine banks and on continental shelves surrounding islands. Toothfish are named for their sharp teeth on their upper jaw.

 

Our toothfish is sustainably caught by demersal trawling, longlining and trapping more than 4137km southwest of Perth.

Fishing vessels target fish in the waters of Heard and McDonald Islands – (Sub-Antarctic Australian Territory).

 

Fish are caught, headed & gutted then blast frozen on board at sea. We then process the frozen trunks into cutlets using a band saw.
