As the world’s population grows, thought-leaders across the globe seek sustainable methods for producing nutritious, great tasting food for generations to come. Leaders in the aquaculture (farm-raised seafood) industry such as Verlasso and Open Blue have led the way in bringing premium, fresh farm-raised seafood to market while providing a purely sustainable alternative to wild-caught seafood.
We’re committed to bringing you the best possible seafood including a wide selection of premium farm-raised fish. Beginning this fall we’re excited to have fresh True North Gulf of Maine Salmon on ice in our seafood cases. This pure-tasting Atlantic salmon is proudly raised in the USA by the True North Seafood Company using industry-leading aquaculture practices and state-of-the-art technology.
