Colorado Hybrid Striped Bass

Colorado Hybrid Striped Bass

It’s not always necessary to go to the coasts for a great flavored seafood option. Colorado Catch Hybrid Striped Bass is naturally raised from fingerlings to fillets in pure artesian waters flowing from Colorado’s San Luis Valley. This firm yet flaky and moist textured fish is farmed in Alamosa by a family-owned company, Colorado Catch. Co-owner Tyler Faucette says the company produces 350,000 pounds of the bass each year, and nearly half of that stays local, being consumed within the state of Colorado. Colorado Catch’s unique geothermal resources and circular tank system have enabled them to increase growth rates, eliminate off-flavors and sustain yields for year-round production.

Product Profile









The Colorado Hybrid Striped Bass is very versatile because of its clean taste and firm, but flakey texture.  This fish can be consumed raw, sashimi-style or made into a ceviche.  For cooking preparations it lends well to pan-searing with the skin on, grilling whole, poaching and baking.

This Colorado Hybrid Striped Bass is a cross between the East Coast Striped Bass and White Bass. Because it is a hybrid, the stripes on the fish are “broken” and not straight.
