Yellowtail Kingfish


Caught between various locations around Cape Town, our Yellowtail or formally known as the Seriola Lalandi, is one of the most sought after for sushi & sashimi. Mostly caught in the size range of 2.50kg to 6.50kg these fish found in our colder waters of 16*C to 17*C show great fat content when prepared as Hamachi.

Cape Fish has also taken the treatment of this product a step further as yellowtail caught in volumes is seldom looked after with great care. All of our yellowtail has been through the process of Ikejime & bleeding once harvested & as soon as those 2 processes are complete the fish go into slurry tubs for cooling down. Harvested by rod & reel or trolling gear, this method of fishing is extremely specific & accounts for 0 by-catch.

Exported fresh in 30lb cartons this product is well known for being above the rest when it comes to sushi & sashimi quality & has found a strong foothold in the European marketplace.

In addition to the product not only being cared for extremely well, but Yellowtail fishing around Cape Town also is not as seasonal as tuna fishing & provided the fisherman knows what they are doing, it is a product that we are able to offer with great consistency throughout the year.
