Big Island Moi
Moi is the local Hawaiian name given to a warm water reef species known to others as Pacific threadfin (Polydactylus sexfilis). Also, thanks to the fact that it was once a fish reserved only for the local royalty, moi is known to many as the ali'I fish, or "Fish of the Kings." Moi are only found in the waters off the coast of Hawaii, and it is here that Troutlodge Marine works with this white-meat fish known to chefs and consumers for being healthy, versatile, and flavorful. Moi was even recently featured on the wildly-popular Iron Chef America™. Click here to view this exciting video.
Atop the lava beds along the renowned Kona Coast, we raise moi in land-based marine aquaculture facilities that utilize crystal-clear sea-water pumped from just off-shore. We maintain our own broodstock, and so we have full control over the production cycle, from egg to harvest.
Moi are available year-round in limited quantities, so contact us today to learn more about how we can serve you with Hawaii's freshest, highest-quality cultured moi.
