Corvina Sea Bass (Cilus gilberti)
Corvina is a white sea bass that has a mild, sweet taste with a firm, large flaked flesh. When raw it has a pinkish flesh but cooks up white. Our Corvina is caught in Ecuador by fisher people using gill nets. In South America, Corvina is regarded as a prime table fish and is very popular for ceviche.
‘Weakfish that makes you strong’
Corvina Bass belongs to the Weakfish family an unfortunate name as the fish is actually high in protein content. The only discernable reason for the label “weak” is its fragile mouth structure which permits a hook to tear out rather easily. This fish is perfect for any marinades or ceviche!
