What's wild caught and farm raised fish?
Farm Raised- Consists of raising fish commercially in tanks, enclosures and controlled pens across the country usually in lakes, ponds, rivers and oceans. Due to their compact living situations and feed, they tend to have more diseases, toxins, artificial dyes, antibiotics and contain more fat then compared to their wild caught versions
Wild Caught - These fish tend to be higher in Omega 3 fatty acids, protein and contain very low levels of disease as well as being free from antibiotics, pesticides & artificial dyes. Wild caught are obviously free to roam about the ocean and find their own food which results in them containing less fat than the farm raised versions. While mercury can be an issue with wild caught, it can be just as much of an issue with farm raised fish that are raised in the ocean. The only down side is that wild caught fish tend to cost 3-4 times more than farm raised fish.
Where is your fish from?
Our fish is caught in New England and Alaska. It is caught by a fisherman with a rod and reel, not large drag nets. Each fish is hand cut by us either at sea or on land.

How is the fish packaged and how should I store it?
The fish is packaged in plastic bins. Any fish that you will not be using the next 24 hours should be stored in ziplocs and frozen flat.
What's the best way to care for my fish?
Please do not rinse any of the fish when you receive it. Only rinse the fish just prior to cooking. Chlorinated water speeds up the spoiling process. This fish can be frozen, pat it dry and store in ziplocks. Remove from freezer and place in fridge about 24 hours before your desired cooking time.
