Open Blue Cobia and Holiday Hours 12.15.16 December 14 2016 Posted in

Open blue cobia is in the shop this week and is another example farmed fish done right.  These beauties are quite versatile.  Their skin produces wonderfully crisp fillets, while their nice fattiness lends well to any raw application.  More importantly though, you can feel good about eating this fish.  Raised in open ocean net pens 7 miles off the coast of Panama in the Caribbean sea, these fish are fed a fishmeal diet from sustainable sources and at no point are fed any hormones, contaminants, colorants or pesticides.  Moreover, the pen densities are super low (see above picture) allowing the fish to swim freely and the pens are designed to move with the current, producing virtually no nutrient or waste buildup in the surrounding environment.  Come on by and grab some for the weekend!


Christmas is next week, but it’s not too late to get gift cards and seafood kits sent to friends and family! 

Stay tuned next week for a complete list of Christmas specialties. In the meantime, check out our holiday hours and ordering polices below as well as this weekend’s specialties.
