As national nutrition month draws to a close the studies keep piling up.
First, the Pennsylvania School of Nursing finds that a steady diet of seafood advances your 9-11 year old’s IQ by a good 5 points over kids who eat the usual proteins.
Now, the Global Council on Brain Health study in January concludes that Omega 3 fatty acids direct from seafood, NOT from supplements, protect neurodegenerative disorders. These experts say “Eat the fish.” This study joins dozens of others including a late 2017 study of 6,000 subjects by the Journal of the American Geriatric Society showing that piling on the seafood at the expense of red meat proteins generates a 35% lower risk of cognitive impairment.Read More

The Bomb Cyclone snowstorms and frigid weather that over 100 million of our neighbors have experienced since the beginning of the year also impact our food supply.
The most obvious impacts are on plane delays and cancellations, but trucks are delayed in weather and from resulting traffic snarls as well.Read More

We are still a week away and already this Superbowl is racking up impressive statistics.
Most of those are attached to a vibrant quarterback who straddles the line between Generation X and the millennials. He breaks the mold by being; the oldest starting quarterbacks, the most appearances in a Super Bowl and the most Super Bowl wins before he even suits up for this one.Read More

The benefits of providing free meal services to employees have been well documented. Those benefits are very well known among tech companies.
Better companies using this perk also understand the importance of serving quality proteins, produce and baked goods. What may not be as obvious are the benefits of serving great seafood.Read More

Non-native or invasive species of plants, snakes, fish and oysters have been in the news for years. They displace native flora and fauna and often ruin the habitat in which they settle.
Getting rid of invasive plants often involves herbicides which can be as harmful to the environment as the invasive plant itself… yuck! Getting rid of invasive snakes is costly and can be painful…double yuck!! Getting rid of invasive seafood is simply delicious.Read More

“Trash” in this case is a misnomer. Fish without a ready commercial market are often are caught in the same nets as commercial fish such as Cod or Haddock. The fishermen separate these non-commercial fish from the target catch and so coined the term “trash” fish.
The unfortunately named fish are delicious, nutritious, easy to prepare, sustainable and easy on the wallet.Read More

Lent meant Fridays without meat when I was growing up in Cedar Lake Indiana. If we were lucky we had pancakes. If not so lucky, we had fish. Fish was not a great choice in those days. It tasted pretty bad, and it made the kitchen smell like …well fish.
Lent is totally different with the arrival FultonFishMarket.com.Read More

Red Snapper is considered the poster child of fraud foods. According to Eater Magazine: Rockefeller University's Dr. Mark Stoeckle is involved in DNA species testing for the Barcode of Life project. Dr. Stoeckle said, "Just don’t ever order red snapper. The poster child for fraud, the real thing is served up less than six percent of the time.” Essentially, if you have ordered Red Snapper 20 times there is a pretty fair chance you have actually had the fish once . . . or maybe not at all.Read More
Jan 18, 2017 5:16:56 PM | Do yourself a huge favor. Add fresh seafood to your plate! Eat seafood twice a week!
Why a favor?
The biggest single impact you can have on your health is to switch out a burger meal for a fresh seafood meal. If you make no other health commitment for the year, make this one. For energy - more punch per ounce than any other proteins. This switch reduces the risk of eventual cardiovascular disease by 36% and dementia related diseases, the fastest growing cause of death, by over 50%!Read More

Food Blogger Lauren @healthydelish made it her goal to eat lots of fresh seafood while visiting Providence this past summer. On one of her stops at a cool “hipster” restaurant she discovered some of the freshest, most delicious fish tacos she’d ever eaten. She wanted to recreate those tacos in her own kitchen, so we sent her some of our “Fulton Fresh” halibut and salmon and she went to work.
“I couldn’t get over how fresh the halibut I used in these tacos was. They tasted even fresher than the ones I had over the summer.”Read More

Food blogger Carolyn @fooddreamer has been aiming to include more fish into her weekly meal planning for some time now. Living in Portland, just an hour and a half from the Oregon coastline, there’s technically plenty of fresh seafood nearby. However, she’s been hesitant.
“. . . I don’t always know where to get it or how to tap into that resource. What my local grocery stores carry may or may not be local or sustainable, and it may not even be very fresh . . . I think that’s probably the biggest factor in keeping most people from cooking fish at home.”Read More
Nov 15, 2016 11:46:16 AM | Featuring Fulton Fresh Faroe Island Salmon
For years blogger Lani @LifeAnchored refused to eat fish. That is, until a year ago when her husband convinced her to try a bite of his salmon and she loved it! So Lani’s mind was changed, but there was still some hesitation about where to buy quality seafood.
“One of my biggest hang ups about fish was that I was nervous about freshness. I’d heard tons of stories about grocery store fish fiasco.”Read More
Nov 1, 2016 11:14:51 AM | Featuring Fulton Fresh East Coast Halibut
When we asked Annie, the food blogger behind Maebells, to create her magic around a sampling of our “Fulton Fresh” seafood, she was excited.
“Here in rural Tennessee fresh seafood is basically non existent. Everything in the grocery is frozen or imported because when you live in a land locked state that isn’t usual commodity. Until now that is!”Read More
Sep 28, 2016 2:54:01 PM | Studies show eating more fish reduces the risk of developing dementia related conditions by as much as 53%.
Succulent salmon broiled with dill and lemon. Savory monkfish stew. Moist and flaky halibut en papillote. Yes, I eat lots of fish. Who knew I was actually feeding my brain as well as my appetite!
I certainly knew that following a seafood-rich Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease and some cancers. What I most recently discovered is that a study has shown this same diet, replacing meat with fish, actually slows down the signs of aging in your brain. Now, that’s news this fish lover was compelled to write about.Read More
Sep 6, 2016 9:44:00 AM | Cannot make this stuff up!
I ran across two head scratchers this week that have a lot to say about why more and more Americans are skeptical about the advice they are getting on the nutritious values of various foods.
The first was a Forbes Leadership Piece by Hank Cardello, author of Stuffed: an insider’s view on who’s really making America fat. He chronicles how the Food Industry has lost control over shaping consumer tastes to fuel demand for their products. Food bloggers, public health advocates, celebrity nutritionists and chefs, and politicians are challenging Food Industry Views and perhaps even Government views by taking the megaphone (generally social media) to bend opinions to their own agenda. This leads to lawsuits, new taxes and other regulations such as the GMO labeling requirements, and more importantly to the loss of traditional food industry product sales.Read More
Aug 15, 2016 3:53:00 PM | Oh Yeah? What are YOU gonna do about it?
We have spent the last few weeks commenting on how difficult it is to gain access to our own fabulous seafood. 9+ of 10 seafood experiences involve seafood imported from overseas, much of it is undocumented and almost none is fresh. This has denied us a set of fabulous taste experiences.
Over time consumers have found that grass-fed beef isn't always the honest story, nor is cage-free chicken the same as pasture-raised. So many supermarkets and restaurants have climbed on the grass-fed, local, organic and cage-free bandwagon, that it is difficult to separate the story from the facts. Health benefits, earth benefits and certainly taste benefits are worlds apart and so finding a trusted source is important. Those retailers and restaurants who are telling “part of the story” are subscribing to the theory that they are doing no harm. When it comes to nutrition for each of us, our children and our earth, "doing no harm" is just not good enough.Read More
Aug 2, 2016 4:37:00 PM | A question posed by Mike Spindler
Two weeks ago we talked about Larry Olmsted’s book: Real Food, Fake Food, and how fraudulent seafood was stealing from us the joy of great tasting fresh seafood.
Last week we discussed all that cheap, imported (and bad tasting) seafood in your local supermarket and most restaurants, and how the system is rigged toward fraud and dishonesty (sometimes called creative marketing.) Again, the victim is you, your taste-buds, your health and the health of the world’s waterways.Read More
Jul 25, 2016 4:43:00 PM | A question posed by Mike Spindler
Last week we gave our take on the July 10th New York Post article which covered Larry Olmsted’s book entitled Real Food, Fake Food, and how fraudulent seafood was stealing from us the joy of great tasting fresh seafood.
This week we want to dig just a bit deeper into why so much food in general, and seafood specifically, is fake. It has a great deal to do with the desire of the food industry to deliver inexpensive food to our shelves.Read More
Jul 18, 2016 10:54:00 AM | A question posed by Mike Spindler
On July 10th the New York Post covered Larry Olmsted’s new book entitled Real Food, Fake Food.
Mr. Olmsted documents just how much of the food we eat every day is not what it seems. Turns out it is quite a lot.
Sometimes the fakes are dangerous such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil laced with peanut oil. Sometimes, the retailer or food service establishments embrace the fakes. Kobe beef is only sold to 3 restaurants in the U.S., so if it is on the menu, it is probably not on the plate, or Red Lobster’s “fake” lobster bisque.Read More
Jun 27, 2016 4:27:00 PM | A note from Robert DiGregorio – Bobby Tuna
I’ve been in the fish business for over 30 years now. It’s my passion, and one of the reasons is that I’m selling something that’s so good for you. Fish is packed with lots of high quality protein, and it’s loaded with vitamins, minerals and omega-3s – those good fats we all need to keep healthy.
I believe everyone should eat fish at least twice a week. If seafood is not part of your weekly routine, it should be. Often people tell me that they would eat more seafood if they knew how to pick the best tasting items. “I never know how to pick fish?” or “How do I tell if the fish is fresh?”Read More
