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.

Raining Fish?!


As a portly individual, I have been trying to take up running to lose weight. I was going to run today (and actually felt like it for once) but it now looks like this is not going to happen. As I type, rain is pouring down so hard that I almost can’t see out my window. The storm can be heard roaring in the background. As I sit here, though, I can only imagine what it would be like to hear a sudden -THUMP- against my window. To go outside to see what in the world it is, and then to behold it – a silver fish flopping wildly for life out on the lawn! Then something slimy and wet bouncing off my head. Another fish! Personally I would run back inside to wait this odd weather out. This scenario sounds crazy to imagine, but for many around the world it has happened! Yes, it can actually “rain” fish.

Fish rains have been recorded throughout history from as early as  the first century AD to the present era, and have been observed all over the world. During a windy storm with precipitation, fish are seen to start dropping with the rain.  Sometimes the fish are dead, sometimes alive. The fish can then be found littering the ground once the weather has passed, sometimes to be collected as food.  These fish rains have been witnessed many miles from water.
