Merino's purchases its fresh seafood from Westport's own local family run boats. We are always working hard to provide the best pricing available for the seafood that we have to offer. We purchase seafood from boats that use sustainable catch methods, with limited impact to other species. Every can of albacore that we have can be traced back to the individual boat, and trip when the fish was caught.
