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're humbled to have been featured in this article along with some of the other best seafood markets in America.

Dogs and Seafood

You may remember, from previous posts, this guy. Ike, my dog. Like most dogs, Ike is crazy about food. Hence, he is never far away when seafood is being prepared. I’ve often wondered, however, whether or not I should give in to Ike’s begging for fish. Can dogs safely eat seafood, or is it bad for them? Here’s what I found out.

“Can dogs eat fish? The simple answer: Yes, dogs can eat fish5.” asserts an article by Caitlin Ultimo. In all of my research I did not find a single source that said that dogs should never be given any seafood, ever. So, it’s okay to feed your dog seafood – but not all types of seafood, not all the time. It turns out that you need to do your homework before handing your dog that cut of fish fillet off the grill. Some seafood is healthy for dogs, and some should not be given to them under any circumstances. The seafood also needs to be prepared in certain ways that keep it safe, and the frequency with which it is fed also must be taken into account.
