FAQ

I only buy fresh. Why buy frozen?

Modern freezing techniques make many of the frozen fish superior to those that are not. Why? Because lots of fish are now frozen on the boat, just minutes after being caught, with flash-freezing units that maintain a temperature far below the typical home freezer. Farm-raised fish is frozen on the spot, as freezers are incorporated into the farm site.

Since more than 85 percent of the seafood we eat is imported, most of this fish is frozen before it makes it to our local fish market or grocery store. Some fish that is labeled “fresh" are in fact previously frozen, and while reputable fishmongers will reveal this, not all fish markets do.

What's the difference between wild caught and farmed fish?

The wild caught fish include all the fish and seafood caught in nets, traps, or with fishing lines. Humans have harvested wild fish and seafood for millennia, and in fact, fish and shellfish are considered to be renewable resources because under normal conditions they can replenish their populations naturally.  The problem, however, is that an increase in the demand for fish and seafood is causing overfishing to occur. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration watches over fisheries and using scientific methods to manage fish populations to prevent overfishing. That’s certainly a good thing, and one way to help sustain wild fish populations is to increase the availability of farmed fish.

There may be some minor nutritional differences between farmed and wild caught fish, but not enough to proclaim one or there other as unhealthy. Our customers can make their decisions for a variety of reasons which is why we offer both but all in all, either fish is a nice healthy choice for dinner.
