Black Rockfish (Sebastes melonops)
Uses

In Alaska, directed commercial fisheries for pelagic rockfish, with black rockfish generally as the primary target, occur in the areas of Kodiak, Chignik, South Alaska Peninsula, Lower Cook Inlet, and Southeast Alaska. Black rockfish tend to be marketed as domestic fresh fillets or frozen in the round and shipped to Asian markets. Black rockfish are also targeted by sport fishermen in Alaska.
