Shop our Seafood
From salmon to lobster, we have a wide variety of seafood to fulfill your needs. No trip to the ocean required.
Farm-raised fish are raised in controlled aquatic areas that exist within large bodies of water. Our partnered water farmers work to ensure that our farmed fish are raised sustainably and hold the health of the animals and environment as their top priority.
Wild-caught fish are sourced by fishermen in their natural environment. Availability of wild-caught seafood is dependent upon seasonality. Our partners work diligently to ensure that their fishing practices are sustainable and yield as little bycatch (unwanted marine life caught during fishing) as possible.
Unlike other retailers whose seafood is frozen twice, our fish is caught, processed, frozen and sent directly to our stores to guarantee freshness. Our refreshed offerings include Alaskan Cod and Sockeye Salmon.
