Redfish, also known as Ocean Perch, are found in deep basins and along the edge of the continental shelf off the Atlantic coast. Redfish is harvested year-round and is quickly processed and frozen to preserve freshness. Redfish is moist, with moderately firm fillets that are lean, moist, and flaky. It has a mild taste with a touch of sweetness and its flavour will hold up to a variety of sauces. It is high in protein and low in fat, making it an excellent choice for health-conscious consumers.
