Do you sell fresh fish?

We sell frozen and tinned fish, which in most cases is fresher than “fresh fish” you get at the seafood counter. We carefully select and partner with producers who utilize cutting-edge freezing technology and production methods to preserve seafood at the peak of freshness. By harvesting each species from their natural waters during peak season, as well as freezing it hours after harvest, we preserve the nutritional benefits, taste, and texture. 

Learn more on our Why Frozen + Tinned page.

Do you sell whole fish?

We sell no-hassle, ready to cook portions of fish which is more convenient and creates less waste. 

I want to feed a family of 4. How much should I buy?

The majority of our products feature (2) 6 oz. servings, which is perfect for two.

Our tinned fish come in a 3.9 oz. or 4 oz. tin, enough for one person’s meal or perfect to use as an appetizer.

Is your fish ready to eat?

We offer ready to eat products, including - Smoked Norwegian Salmon, Smoked Norwegian Steelhead, Cooked American Shrimp, Salmon Sashimi, and our entire tinned line. While our sashimi and tinned line requires no thawing and can be enjoyed right out of the box, the rest of our ready to eat products require thawing.

Our frozen seafood is not ready to eat and should be cooked before consuming.

Can I mix and match my bundle?

Our bundles are curated collections of our favorite fish, so you can’t mix and match. You can always buy our frozen, ready to eat, and tinned seafood a la carte. 

How do I order three portions of salmon or any other seafood?

Most of our products have two portions (or servings) apiece. If you need three, you’ll want to buy an additional bag. Don’t worry about having leftover servings. Our frozen seafood is vacuumed sealed, keep in your home freezer for up to 6 months, and each portion is individually wrapped, so you can thaw exactly as many servings as you need.
