Baja Kampachi (Seriola rivoliana) also known as Kampachi, Amberjack, Yellowtail.
Harvested multiple times a week, Baja Kanpachi are sustainably raised from eggs and grown in ocean pens in the pristine waters of the Pacific, within trucking distances to the US, making them a fresh local source of premium quality sushi-grade Kanpachi available year round.
We believe Kanpachi represent a more sustainable alternative to the traditional Japanese Hamachi with a delicious, slightly less oily content and a delicate ocean flavor enabling it to be served cooked as well as sashimi/crudo.
Being in Southern Baja, we have been following the development of Rancheros del Mar for years and have seen their practices first hand to assure you full transparency and practices on this product.
The Baja Kanpachi amberjack we import and distribute are a raised by our local partners, Ranchero del Mar, in the vibrant waters of Bahia La Paz, in Southern Baja California Mexico, amongst the most pristine in the world.
