Spotting the Freshest Fish and Shellfish

Freshness is paramount when it comes to seafood, and our grocery store is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality. Here’s how to discern the freshest picks from the vast oceanic selection we offer.

Fish: Look, Smell, and Feel

The freshest fish have clear, bright eyes and shiny scales. Gently press the flesh – it should spring back, indicating freshness. The smell should be of the ocean, mild and slightly briny, not fishy or ammonia-like. These signs are your assurance of the freshest catch in our grocery store.

Shellfish Selection: Clams, Mussels, and More

When selecting shellfish, ensure that shells are closed or close when tapped – a sign they’re alive and fresh. Our grocery store offers a variety of shellfish, from succulent clams to sweet mussels, all stored under optimal conditions to maintain their sea-fresh quality.

Understanding Sustainable Seafood

Choosing sustainable seafood is not just good for the environment; it ensures the long-term health of ocean ecosystems. Look for certifications or labels indicating sustainable practices, available on various seafood options in our grocery store. This commitment to sustainability supports both the planet and provides you with the best quality seafood.

Seafood and Health: A Nutritional Bounty
