A: Local small boat fishermen are facing great pressure from many angles. These are the men and women who make the tiny fishing ports along the American coasts so special. Many come from generations of men and women who have made a living harvesting the ocean.
A: The cormorant brings luck to fishermen all over the world. The bird's streamlined style of catching exactly what it dives for inspires the Red's Best spirit.

A: A myth we intend to disprove is that seafood must be consumed the day it is purchased. When our fishing families catch fish and put it in their own refrigerators, it lasts over a week. We can recreate that for you. For maximum shelf-life, put your portions in a bowl of ice and change the ice as it melts. Fish love ice! (NOTE: Fish delivered via FedEx home delivery will last approx. 3 days in the refrigerator.)
A: If you do not plan on consuming your fish within 4 days, yes, you freeze your seafood with the exception of live shellfish and live lobster.
