Hawaiian Moonfish (Opah)

Regular price $75.00

Moonfish, also known as Opah, are a large beautiful species indigenous to the tropical waters of the Eastern Pacific Barrier, a 4000 mile expanse of pristine deep ocean water between Hawaii and the coasts of the Americas.

This species was once given away as a gesture of good fortune in Hawaii until the early 1980's when local fisherman started popularizing the species and a commercial fishery was born.

There are three distinct color variations regarding it's flesh. The cheek meat a rosy red, the loin, which runs along the backbone from eye to tail, a light salmon-orange, and the belly, an intricately marbled blush pink.
The flavor is a cross between tuna and swordfish — distinctive but not overpowering. All of our Opah are sustainably long line caught.


This fish is terrific eaten raw, sashimi style, or broiled / hard seared. Its also a popular fish to smoke.
