Growing up in Newburyport Ma on the water front of the Merrimack River as a fisherman I have always had a love for the environment and especially the Ocean. I learned young that there was a big difference in the quality and the flavor of Day Boat and Trip Boat harvested seafoods....Fish isn't supposed to smell "Fishy" raw or when you are cooking it. The cold waters of the North Atlantic produce the some of the cleanest - healthiest and best tasting seafoods anywhere in the world. Our mission is to support the little guys of the local mom and pop day boat fisheries that use sustainable fishing methods and bring you fresh healthy Organic seafoods where as even the processing methods leave no waste. All of the Fish Gury left over from the filleting process is either used as Lobster Bait or converted in to Organic Liquid Fertilizer further helping the environment by reducing the amount of chemicals used in gardens and even farming that eventually end up in ground water and flow in to the Ocean. My Sources of seafood are tight and narrow and I use them exclusively, I know what boats harvested which seafoods and the areas in which that seafood was harvested - Vessel Names and always keep the permit numbers of the Scallop vessels that sourced them and never allowing any seafoods to cross contaminate with another species. We offer seafoods priced by the pound as well as family bulk deals to help save families money without sacrificing quality. The Quality of our seafood is second to none and once you try it you'll be Hooked.
