Although not so handsome to look at, Monkfish is often referred to as the "poor man's lobster." The reason for this is Monkfish pretty much eat the same thing as lobsters do. There are two thick fillets taken from the tail that are prized for their tenderness and mild flavor. Monkfish is incredibly versatile seafood to cook. You can bake, broil, fry, grill, poach, or sauté this firm protein, and the fillets take on the flavor of marinades and sauces very well. The sturdy texture makes it suitable for grilling since it won't fall apart like more delicate fish.

Trusted Harvester

KnowSeafood works only with harvesters who maintain the highest sustainability standards, are committed to environmental protection and are actively engaged in corporate social responsibility.

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!

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.


Get inspired and add some new dishes to the mix.
