SUSTAINABLE FISH ARE FOREVER

I regularly research and explore many avenues of information daily, from the National Fisheries Institute, Monterey Bay and Shedd Aquariums, Seafood Business, National Marine Fisheries Service, FDA, various environmental groups, scientific studies, private groups and even the national media for the most up to date information I can find. This determines what I buy and what I sell in my store. I will not purchase fish that I think may be over exploited, over fished or endangered. What I sell in my store has tracability and is from sustainable fisheries with good fishing and handling practices. Fish is a volatile commodity and is constantly changing. My promise to you is that I provide you with the best choices in freshest fish that you can buy and that you can feel good about eating it!

I will not be selling any...

  • Bluefin Tuna, wild or ranched
  • Freshwater eel(Unagi)
  • Imported Sturgeon Caviar
  • Orange Roughy
  • Shark

 

The fish that we carry is all fresh (except toothfish) and many are available fresh only in season so be sure to call and see what's in season today!

 

Fresh - On Hand Daily
