Kampachi is a sashimi grade yellowtail (Seriola rivoliana) responsibly cultivated by The Kampachi Company  in the deep, clear waters of Baja, CA. In the wild, the species goes by several synonyms, including almaco jack, amberjack, longfin yellowtail and yellow kingfish. What sets this farmed Kampachi apart from its wild counterpart is its higher fat content, which is highly desired by chefs and sushi aficionados! The Kampachi are harvested by the respected Ike Jime process, a meticulous procedure that minimizes stress on the fish to better preserve its flavor and texture. In addition to being a humane practice, Ike Jime prevents the surge of lactic acid that can compromise the quality of the meat. As a result, this Kampachi provides a clean, crisp bite and a rich, buttery flavor that makes it outstanding for sashimi, sushi and ceviche. It’s equally delicious cooked, providing a firm texture, large flake and slightly sweet finish. From baking, grilling and sautéing to pan searing, poaching and smoking, there’s no wrong way to cook this fish. It’s also one of the purest, healthiest foods you can eat as it’s full of high-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acids with no detectable mercury or PCBs. About The Kampachi Company The Kampachi Company is a closed-cycle producer of yellowtail. Focused on environmental stewardship, it employs the latest scientific research and innovative technologies to maximize fish welfare from egg to plate. The process starts in the company’s land-based hatchery where it produces fingerlings from local broodstock, and transitions to a grow-out. The pens are situated in deep water with strong currents and have no discernible impact on the surrounding eco-system. Working to continually improve processes to ensure its aquaculture operations are among the most environmentally sound in the world, The Kampachi Company is committed to achieving Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) and Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certifications.
