Tips for Selecting Seafood
The following are some helpful tips when selecting fresh seafood.

Tip #1: Know How to Select the Best
Markets should always have seafood on ice. Fresh seafood will always smell like fish and a bit like the water it comes from. No seafood should smell overly fishy or at all rancid. Be wary of black or pink blemishes, as this could impact the flavor of the fillet. Live lobsters and crabs should be lively and should not have visible signs of disease or age. When in doubt, buy only from knowledgeable and reliable suppliers. This website is a great resource for seafood retailers and customer reviews of them.

Tip #2: Be Flexible - and Adventurous - When Selecting Seafood
Buying locally caught seafood ensures freshness and helps to support local fishers. If local seafood is not available – or just not what you’re after – being open to different kinds of fish is a good idea. You will always want the freshest fish available, so taking home some orange roughy instead of tilapia may be your best bet in regards to when it arrived. There are many delicious seafood options available, so long as you are willing to sample something different.

Tip #3: When it Comes to Seafood, Time is Very Important
Finding out when the fish was caught is only one step in ensuring fish and seafood is fresh. While frozen seafood is good for at least a few weeks – so long as it is vacuum sealed to avoid freezer burn – fresh seafood must be prepared as soon as possible. For this reason, try to purchase only as much as you need for your recipe. Generally speaking, you should buy no more than one pound of fish per person unless you plan on properly sealing and freezing your leftover raw portions. When selecting whole lobsters or crabs, one to two pounds of shellfish per person is recommended. Depending on size, no more than one dozen whole clams, oysters, or other mollusks are needed per person.

Retail seafood, unlike the wholesale seafood industry, deals directly with the consumer. This industry is comprised of the restaurants, grocery stores, and fish markets where you purchase your clams, lobster, and other seafood. Wholesale, on the other hand, is the distributor that is selling the fish to your local market or restaurant, for you to then enjoy.

For regional fish, like crab or salmon, depending on the area you live in, can often be purchased directly from the source. For those who live near the ocean, the local fresh fish market sells the catch of the day, where you can easily find mussels, shellfish, tuna, and other types of seafood that tastes better and is often cheaper than buying fish at the grocery store.

Some seafood is not available within the United States, and must be imported, even to sell it on a retail level. Many of the larger restaurants that you dine at import fish directly to their kitchens. If it is not possible to deliver the fish still alive, then it is imported in special units, either shipped in dry ice, or units that are equipped with a refrigeration system to keep the seafood tasting fresh.

However, the retail seafood industry is not completely dominated by restaurants, caterers, and grocery stores. Many types of seafood can also be found by shopping online. Though you may have to pay a delivery fee, many websites sell the food at a lower rate than visiting a restaurant or the market. Still, the downside of purchasing your seafood online, is that it is usually frozen, not freshly caught.

Whether you visit an outdoor market, find a sale on imported fish online, or partake in a meal at your favorite seafood restaurant, you are benefiting from the efforts of the retail seafood industry.
