Why Support your Local Fishermen?
Local small boat fishermen are facing great pressure from many angles. These are the men and women who make the tiny fishing ports along the American coasts so special. Many come from generations of men and women who have made a living harvesting the ocean.

What is one portion of fish?
We consider a portion to be a freshly cut piece of fish that would feed one average adult which is approx. 8 oz. Your seafood comes perfectly ready to apply to your favorite recipe without any excessive handling. A one pound retail pack can feed at least 2 people.
How long will fresh, raw fish hold in my fridge?
A myth we intend to disprove is that seafood must be consumed the day it is purchased. When our fishermen catch fish and put it in their own refrigerators, it lasts over a week. We can recreate that for you. For maximum shelf-life, put your portions in a bowl of ice and change the ice as it melts. Fish love ice! (NOTE: Fish delivered via overnight home delivery will last approx. 3 days in the refrigerator.)
Can I freeze my seafood if I'm not going to eat it right away?
If you do not plan on consuming your fish within 4 days, yes, you freeze your seafood with the exception of live shellfish and live lobster.
