Food Information:

THE FISHERY - Ask any fish monger about procuring Gulf species and he’ll mention St. Petersburg, Florida (“St. Pete” for short). Vast varieties of finfish ranging from tuna and swordfish to groupers and snappers are distributed through this historically-rich region of the Florida coastline. Expect to also see a robust selection of Keys-caught species like Yellowtail Snapper, Caribbean Red Snapper and Hogfish to come through St. Pete. It’s regionally situated in a perfect location for national distribution and with our Q&A in place, it’s always top quality.

THE FISH - Most Florida Pompano on the Market are less than 3 lbs. Typically the 1-1.5 lb fish are a phenomenal "Whole" Fish presentation. The larger fish produce sizable fillets, and have a great edible skin. The Florida Pompano are in the Jack family and are closely akin to Southern "African" Pompano, Permit, Palemeta, and Long Fin Pompano. Florida Pompano are prized above many of their "cousins" and available through SeafoodS.com for next day delivery.
