Top Ten New England Seafood Markets

Yankee Magazine Weighs in on Atlantic Seafood Market

“This market is the seafood gem of the lower Connecticut River valley. Owned by Lisa Feinman, everything here is as fresh as it can be. CIA-trained resident chef Jerry Doran and his staff cut all their fish fresh and make all their prepared seafood delights from scratch every day. Late spring is a good time to pay a visit, when the shad are running up the Connecticut River and fresh shad and shad roe are in plentiful supply.”

We’ve Recently Been Featured in USA Today

Nationally syndicated newspaper USA Today recently published an article about local seafood markets and the special perks customers are treated to when visiting them. Locally sourced seafood, in-depth knowledge about products and their benefits, and unbeatable freshness are all points that this article touched upon.

Sustainable food & practices as well as having the best fitting seafood for every season are additional reasons why local, independent seafood markets give you something that the big chains just can't match. We're humbled to have been featured in this article along with some of the other best seafood markets in America.

That White Fillet On Your Plate

Has the tuna you’ve been eating at a sushi restaurant ever not tasted quite right? It may not have just been you. Or have you and your family ended up sick the night after having some red snapper from the supermarket? There could be a more sinister reason at play than you’d expect.  You may have fallen victim to seafood fraud. Seafood fraud is defined by the Oceana website (Oceana is the world’s largest conservation organization for oceans) as deceiving seafood customers about what they are buying so as to reap greater profits. Investigators are now finding out that this has been going on a lot more often in the US than we’d previously realized1.

Seafood fraud can be done by lying about a seafood’s origin, claiming that farmed fish was caught wild, or labeling seafood as a different species from what it truly is3. Investigations have been unveiling cases of seafood fraud all around the globe1 in supermarkets, sushi bars, and restaurants. The crime is far more common than one might assume, and has been described by Oceana as “rampant (Weise, 2013)” in the United States3.
