Alaska halibut is harvested using longline gear which is composed of groundline, buoy lines, and gangions, which are short pieces of line with hooks on the end. Longlines are set along the seabed, with baited hooks every few yards. Longline hooks are retrieved one at a time. The fishermen can unhook other species of fish and return them alive to the sea without bringing them on board. In this way, longlining is considered a style of fishing with very little bycatch. Alaska halibut are hauled onboard and immediately tucked in ice until they are brought to shore to be offloaded and transported to our facilities.

Wild Alaska Halibut Cheeks

Halibut cheeks are portions of flesh removed from the head of the Alaska halibut. They have a sweet, luxurious flavor and the texture and oval shape somewhat resemble an Alaska scallop. In fact, the cooking methods typically used for scallops — such as grilling, roasting and pan-frying — also work well for halibut cheeks.
