Is Frozen As Good As Fresh?

  • Frozen seafood can be even better than fresh fish. Our seafood is flash- frozen at the source, preserving it at peak freshness.
  • Remember, “fresh” seafood continues to age as it travels from sea to store!

Eating seafood twice a week can do wonders for your health. Fish is an excellent source of protein without the high saturated fat that many meats contain. Plus, fish contains the powerful polyunsaturated fatty acids, Omega-3s. The only way to get Omega-3s is through the food you eat; your body can't produce them on its own. So, get smart and serve seafood at least twice a week.
