Preparing seafood at home is delicious and fun. It is even more delicious and fun if you use fresh and local fish. If you’d rather use fresh fish than frozen fish, you can get some of the freshest fish at our fish market at Captain Eddie’s Seafood.
There are several reasons why you should opt for fresh fish, as opposed to the frozen counterpart. For one, fresh fish is more delicious! Nothing beats the flavor of a fresh piece of seafood. Frozen seafood lacks flavor in comparison. Additionally, fresh seafood is better for you. If you want to get the most vitamins and nutrients from your meal, consider purchasing fresh fish from our market at Captain’s Eddie’s.
Up next, eating fresh fish is more responsible. This is because fresh fish are sourced by the local fishing industry. This creates a shorter supply chain, meaning you can have a clear understanding of where your fish came from. This also means that your fish is fresh. The United States imports more than 80% of its seafood, which creates significant carbon emissions. Opting for local, fresh fish is more eco-friendly, fresh, and tasty.
Additionally, shopping fresh allows you to expand your palate and try new things. When you shop locally, you may not have access to the same exact species of fish every single time you visit. Instead, you will be introduced to new and lesser-known fish that are just as delicious. You will never get bored when you shop at Captain Eddie’s Seafood.
Lastly, shopping locally supports your local community and economy. Putting money in the pockets of your local fishing industry allows the fisheries, boat captains, oyster farmers, distributors, and processors to thrive. This can boost the local fishing market and improve quality, as well as help your community’s economy grow, which benefits everybody!
