Product Description 

Butterflied Maine Eel fillets are perfect for making your own unagi Kabayaki at home!

In addition to a great source of protein, Maine Eel is a super source of vitamin D, A, and E.

American Unagi - Maine Eel Farmers

Traditionally, Maine's glass eels would be exported to Asia to be grown. Then several years later imported back to the US-- after being raised in unknown conditions with questionable additives. Sadly, most eels you eat will have circumnavigated the globe on some unknown path to your plate.

Raw Maine Eel

American Unagi eels are sourced exclusively from Maine's well-managed fishery, raised in land-based aquaculture systems located on the coast of Maine. The eels are fed a high-quality diet, without the use of hormones or antibiotics. 

Our Butterflied Maine Eel is available in 1 lb vacuum-packed bags. There are 3-4 fillets of Eel in 1 lb. 

Please note that this product ships frozen but may defrost in transit. The product may arrive partially thawed.

Please note: We pack and prepare all orders the day of shipping to ensure quality and freshness.
