Our Butterflied Eel comes in a 1lb pack containing 3-4 fillets (4-6 oz. per fillet).
Beginning with glass eels harvested from the pristine rivers of Maine, our fish are locally raised without added hormones or antibiotics, resulting in a high-quality seafood product unrivaled in its traceability and sustainability.
Eels have a rich history of connection with cultures and recipes all over the world.
