Bluefish has a strong fish flavor and oily content, making it a great frying fish! The meat color ranges from light tan to a blueish brown, with occasional bones.
Bluefish are found in tropical and subtropical waters throughout the world. In the U.S. most bluefish are harvested in the mid-Atlantic, between North Carolina and Massachusetts.
The U.S. Atlantic bluefish population is healthy and well managed. Though previously depleted, harvest regulations have rebuilt the bluefish population to a sustainable size. Bluefish are harvested with gillnets, a gear that typically has high levels of bycatch. But because of bluefish's tendency to migrate in schools, bycatch in this fishery is lower.
