 CATCH OF THE WEEK-COD

 

Please do not feel guilty eating this Cod! Cod is highly restricted and regulated in New England by the National Marine Fishing Service (NMFS). Because of these strict enforcements, we are are starting to see a recovery in the Gulf of Maine Cod populations.

Cod became regionally popular as early as the 1600's here in New England. However, over the past hundred years, there has been an international demand for all forms of cod, including the age old "salted cod", which keeps for up to a year and is used widely all over the world in a variety of cuisines. With this increased demand in cod and an ever increasing world population, came a severely overfished and poorly regulated fishery. Additionally, is has been proven that many cod stocks are migrating further north due to the rapid rise in temperature of the Gulf of Maine over the past two decades.

For these reasons, since the year 2000, cod stocks in some areas of the Gulf of Maine have been on a dramatic decline and this has redefined the fishing industry in New England as a whole. Our once thriving NH fishing fleet is now down to no more than 8 active boats, throughout the entire Seacoast, largely due to these Cod cuts!

Most of the cod you see for sale in your local grocery store has been coming in frozen from Iceland and Norway, as cod migrate north and flourish in those waters, with less restrictive limitations on the fishery.

KNOW YOUR FISHERMEN

Our Fishermen this week are from fleet at Yankee Fisherman's Coop, in Seabrook, NH and our guestboats in Boston.  This is a collective effort several boats to provide us with our Cod this week!

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Cod is great cooked any way: baked, broiled, sautéed, grilled or steamed. It's also very popular in New England Fish Chowder. Remember the cardinal rule for cooking any fish; 10 minutes per inch of fillet thickness, any way you cook it. Here are some great recipe ideas for Cod, including some New England favorites like the one below here on our Pinterest page or check out our blog recipes and videos here.
