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 - The same species as Hawaii's famed Onaga, the Queen Snapper is one of the highest quality Snappers in Fine Dining. This is a species that rarely make it into National distribution. Local chefs disallow their "Secret Snapper" to grace other feature boards in the country. SeafoodS.com has your hook up! Light, Moist, Creamy, Flaky, and Paper White. Treat as you would the highest quality Hawaiian Snappers.
