The pristine waters off the Florida gulf coast, off of Anna Maria Island and connecting village of Cortez, are home to one of this country's last wild fisheries. Seth Cripe, a Florida native, started Cortez Bottarga with the mission of working to support his friends and family's way of life as fisherman, and preserve it for the livelihood of future generations. Upholding our cultural integrity and increasing economic development in the Gulf region is part of our greater commitment to supporting fishing that ensures the ecological health of our oceans, their marine life and their surrounding communities.
Cortez Bottarga does it all - fishing sustainably using hand-thrown cast nets, cleaning the mullet, cutting out the plump golden roe, curing the roe with kosher sea salt and then pressing and drying it to ensure optimum quality. This is all completed within days, thereby creating the freshest bottarga you will ever try. This vibrant delicacy adds a wonderful complexity to dishes with its bright flavor and balanced salinity. We are confident that we are able to produce the truest expression of striped grey mullet bottarga in the world.
