Fillet Glacier 51 Toothfish
Glacier 51, also known as Tootfish, is a unique product that is highly valued by the world's top chefs and demanding customers.
Its snow-white flesh and distinctive scales reveal a clean, sweet flavor with an elegant balance of taste and texture rarely found in other fish fillets.
How is Glacier 51 caught?
This fish is caught at a depth of 2,000 meters in sub-Antarctic ice waters, more than 4,000 km from mainland Australia near Heard Island. At the southern tip of this island rises a giant glacier, called Glacier 51, which flows into the surrounding waters, creating the ideal environment for the precious fish.
Gale-force winds, horizontal snow, ten-meter waves, and just four hours of daylight per day are the weather conditions that fishermen face.
