[VIDEO] Here's Where Your New York City Jewish Deli Gets Its Smoked Whitefish

Acme Smoked Fish is a fish processing spot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn that prepares and smokes tons of fish daily to supply New York City restaurants, including your favorite Jewish Delis. In this video from Eater's The Process series, see how a whitefish gets cleaned, descaled, brined, smoked, and packaged up for delivery to your local deli.

For more than 100 years, Brooklyn’s Acme Smoked Fish Corporation has been selling smoked fish — currently, its lineup includes salmon, whitefish, sable, trout, bluefish, mackerel, and herring — to wholesale clients, like grocery stores and some of New York City’s most famous appetizing stores (like Russ & Daughters, Zabar’s, and Barney Greengrass). Today, its Brooklyn facility produces more than 5,000,000 pounds of cold smoked fish and approximately 1,700,000 pounds of hot smoked fish a year.
