Product Description

Corvina is a generic name for a large variety of fish belonging to the Scaienidae family of fish. There are 270 species within this family, known either as drum fish or croakers. The main difference between the two is that drum fish make a distinct drumming sound while croakers make a croaking sound.

Corvina primarily inhabit in-shore sandy bottoms of the Gulf of California and waters south of the gulf. The most common species, known as Gulf corvina (Cynoscion othonopterus), typically display a silvery blue-grey coloration with dark dots and yellowish fins. Other species include the shortfin corvina (Cynoscion parvipinnis) and orangemouth or yellowmouth corvina (Cynoscion xanthulus), which can be distinguished by a bright orange-yellow coloration inside their mouth.

Highly sought after by commercial and sport fishermen alike, the corvina is similar in many ways to its larger cousin, the "king croaker," aka white seabass. It has an excellent, mild and sweet flavor reminiscent of snapper, with a firm-textured flesh that starts out pink and cooks up white with large flakes. Its high fat content makes it ideal for all types of preparations including baking, broiling, frying and grilling. The corvina's delicate flavor also makes it perfect for ceviche.

Corvina run winter through spring. Fish are caught mostly by hook and line and hand nets by small panga boats working the Sea of Cortez.
