Our Baja Hiramasa is responsibly harvested by Baja Seas in Magdalena Bay. Also known as amberjack in the marketplace, this farmed yellowtail ( Seriola lalandi) is similar to Hawaiian kampachi and provides a slightly less fatty alternative to its Japanese cousin, hamachi.
Use Baja Hiramasa in almost any preparation that calls for a mild, white fish. With its buttery texture, bright, mild flavor, and thinner fillets, Baja
Hiramasa is perfect for sashimi, crudo, sushi, and pan searing.
Baja Seas is the first complete cycle yellowtail (Seriola lalandi) farm in the Americas. Its vision is to be a global leader in marine aquaculture. Respected for its innovation in aquaculture technology, harmony with the environment and social responsibility.
The original yellowtail stock for Baja Seas was bred from fingerlings produced at Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute. Renowned for developing methods of raising high-value marine fin fish species and sustainable ocean fishing practices. The fingerlings were transferred to Baja Seas’ state-of-the-art aquaculture farm on Bahia Magdalena, a pristine bay in southern Baja California.

Baja Seas’ entire production is underscored by responsible technology. Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) create a small water footprint by diminishing pollution and disease; fish are fed sustainably-sourced protein- and omega-rich fish meal derived from sardines in a low Fish In-Fish Out (FIFO) ratio; fish are raised without antibiotics or paraciticides; and semi-automated feeders and feed cameras prevent overfeeding. The result of Baja Seas' commitment to a minimal environmental impact is a great tasting fish!
