Unless you are lucky enough to reside in a fishing community or harvest fish yourself, buying frozen seafood is the best way to ensure the freshest product on your dinner table.

4 Key Reasons for Choosing Frozen over Fresh Seafood

  • Reduce your environmental impact. Fresh fish has to be shipped by air to reach most consumers; frozen can be freighted by ship, rail, or truck with significantly lower environmental impact.
  • Lock in the quality. The quality of seafood cannot be improved once the fish leaves the water, it can only be maintained
  • Get the best seafood year-round. Taste and nutrition are locked in when fish is frozen at sea, and you’re never restricted to just what’s available fresh today.
  • Previously Frozen product is often times displayed in stores’ seafood counters but what it really is is frozen fish, thawed or slacked out, and laid out on ice to depict a “fresh from water” look.

Tried and Tested Thawing Instructions

  • Remove all packaging. Place fillets in a covered dish and thaw in refrigerator overnight.
  • Quick thawing instructions, remove all packaging. Place fillets in a resealable bag and thaw under cold running water for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
