Yellowtail Amberjack is the wild version of the popular sushi item, Hamachi. Epicurean Seafood receives fresh product from the Eastern Central Pacific Ocean, mainly Mexico. It is caught using handlines, trolling lines, and driftnets and the gear is relatively selective thereby minimizing bycatch and other incidental disturbances to the ocean environment. If you plan on using Yellowtail Amberjack for a sashimi application, it is highly recommended that you use the farmed version of this species where environmental controls are in place for controlling parasites. This wild product is exquisite when grilled Caribbean or Mexican style.
