We all know that farm raised fish and shellfish have many benefits. Some of our favorites are the consistency of supply – that helps us keep inventory moving and prices stable. Careful handling means farmed seafood is always top-notch quality and sizing is also consistent. You know what to expect! That’s a good thing.
