The Journey to Toothfish

More than a mile below sea level in the deep volcanic crevices of the ocean, you’ll find Glacier 51 Chilean Sea Bass (Toothfish) traversing the icy waters of Australia’s sub-Antarctic. Getting to this fish is nothing short of perilous — fishermen must battle unforgiving winds, snow and ocean swells, traveling more than 2,500 miles to work the fishery on Heard Island (one of the most remote areas in the world). At the southern tip of the island, you'll find the Fiftyone Glacier, the namesake of the delicious fish that swims underneath it.

Glacier 51 is also part of the only commercial fishing company to be 100% carbon neutral.
