Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) © Scandinavian Fishing Year Book

The toothfish, also known as Chilean Sea Bass, can live up to 50 years and does not reach sexual maturity until about 9 years of age. The MSC would like to advise consumers that they should only buy Chilean sea bass if it carries the MSC ecolabel and comes from a certified sustainable toothfish fishery.

This fish’s fine quality meat means it is considered to be luxury seafood in the USA, Japan and the EU.
