Only from harvesters we trust
Our KS Signature Monkfish is caught off the coast of Massachusetts and at times off the coast of Maine. The directed fishery for Monkfish is relatively new; these fish were once considered nothing more than bycatch. However, as other groundfish like cod and halibut declined in the 1980s and 1990s, more and more Monkfish were caught in New England and the Mid-Atlantic. As a result, they, too, became overfished. Now that our scientific understanding of their populations improved and fishing effort declined, Monkfish are no longer overfished.
The market for Monkfish is for human consumption. U.S. wild-caught monkfish is a smart seafood choice because it is sustainably managed and responsibly harvested under U.S. regulations. Regulations limit possession of bycatch species and require modified fishing gear to reduce bycatch.
A Monkfish Fact: A fish for monks: It's believed monks used to head down to fishing markets and ask for any unused fish. As Monkfish have an unappealing look and were often caught as a byproduct, fishmongers would give their Monkfish to the church to eat!
Good quality, fresh, and tastes good
Fresh and so soft and it tasted so good with lemon, salt and butter
tastes really good, has rich texture, very good with butter and lemon
Monk Fish is a great dish
I love the firmness of this fish. I think it's amazing.
I like it.
I really like this fish, firm and tasty!
Love this company
My order is always quick and everything is always there. One thing about this fish is it never smells, which tells me it’s super fresh
New type of fish to me.
Very fresh and tastes a lot like lobster. I baked it in my fryer oven, but next time I will saute it. Easier to control doneness.
KS best kept secret
Really good monkfish. This fish can be used in just about any recipe. Tried it grilled. Perfect
The Monkfish was very delicious. I only wish it could be received without the membrane. Otherwise great.
Monk fish review
An acquired taste. Didn’t like so much
I really love all my purchases from Knowseafood, the fish is so fresh and excellent and I love the recipes on the website. I only wish there were a few more recipes for each fish type, especially the monk fish. I've never had monk fish and so tried it a couple times now, once fried in a pan with olive oil and butter and it was super delish and meaty but a little spongy, then I tried baking it and it was still delish but again spongy. I'm sure it's my cooking technique so if you can put another couple recipes on the website for baking the monk fish that maybe even I can succeed at, I will definitely buy it again. Thanks for an amazing experience!
