Keeping Your Seafood Safe


When you’re buying seafood, you want to have peace of mind that your food is as safe as possible.

At Atlantic Seafood Market in Old Saybrook, you will never find any added color, pesticides, growth hormones or preservatives in any of our products.

Assurances like that matter more than ever today, as pesticides can be found “in nearly every home, business, farm, school, hospital and park in the United States and are found almost everywhere in our environment,” according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s website.

Wherever you shop, there are several actions you can take to make sure your family is getting the best seafood available.

Ask questions and learn about where your fish is sourced. Learn the difference between fresh and frozen, and farmed versus wild caught fish. There are tons of reliable resources online.

The type of fish you buy has something to do with it. Some fish are less likely to be exposed to pesticides and mercury due to where they live and what they eat.

Visit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration for more information.
