The sablefish, Anoplopoma fimbria, is one of two members of the fish family Anoplopomatidae and the only species in the Anoplopoma genus. In English it is also called sable (USA), butterfish (USA/Australia), black cod (UK, Canada), blue cod (UK), bluefish (UK), candlefish (UK), coal cod (UK), and coalfish (Canada), although many of these names also refer to other species.
The sable fish is found in muddy sea beds in the North Pacific at depths of 300 to 2,700 meters, and is commercially important to Japan. It also is considered a delicacy in many countries for its sweet taste and flaky texture.
