Yellowtail | Portion Frozen Box x4 | Premium Portion Range
A DELICATE, FLAVOURFUL SOUTH AFRICAN CLASSIC
The Cape Yellowtail is famed for its high fat content, which makes it one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids of any fish. In South Africa yellowtail are associated with the annual sardine run, when they leave their deep-water spawning grounds to feast. Our yellowtail is low impact, wild caught by artisanal, handline fishermen off Struisbaai, Cape Point and up the west coast.

Yellowtail is a fast breeding, faster growing and highly resilient fish, with unpredictable seasonal migrations. The latest stock assessments conducted by SASSI indicate populations are healthy and not at risk from overfishing.
