Flatfish

HomeProductsFlatfish

Eastern’s flatfish program offers, frozen-at-sea, wild-caught, MSC certified flatfish from the icy cold waters of Alaska. Eastern’s co-owner, O’Hara Corp., owns and operates the catcher/processor vessels that harvest our flatfish. The catch is gutted and cleaned and immediately frozen at sea to lock in freshness, then it is redistributed to our China facility were it is filleted and packaged.

Due to the well-managed fishery, Alaskan flatfish populations are at healthy levels. Scientists actively monitor the catch to ensure it doesn’t exceed harvest limits and to help set sustainable catch limits for the following season.  

The mild flavor and consistent availability make our Alaskan flatfish a smart and economical choice for foodservice managers and retailers.
