Sablefish versus Alaska Black Cod

J and V | Aug 16, 2014 09:27 PM

Sorry if this is a bit mundane but is there any difference between these? Wikipedia implies they are the same but at a local very well known Japanese restaurant this week, the hostess spent time noting how this was sablefish, NOT Alaska black cod. Is this just a marketing thing like Copper River salmon? Is one more sustainable than the other?
