Sablefish, or blackcod, is a deepsea fish that is found from Alaska to California. Fishermen who target blackcod exclusively use 'fixed gear' such as longlines and traps. Because of their high oil content, these fish are nutritious and rich tasting. Much of the catch in California is exported to Asia where the fish is in high demand, but you can often find it at local markets and restaurants with connections to local fishermen.
