ICF AdminSep 28, '21

When buying seafood online, it can be hard to find a trustworthy company that can deliver it fresh. And how can you be sure that what you’re getting is premium, restaurant-quality seafood? Is it really organic? Where does it come from? How is it sustainable? Seafood Crate and its parent company, Inter-Canada Fisheries, have been in the seafood industry for almost 40 years. Buy seafood online from companies that focus and specialize only in seafood.

Seafood online and seafood sold in fish markets and grocery stores can be of dubious quality. Grocery store seafood just don’t cut it. They largely receive their fish pre-cut so it’s oxidizing during the days in transit to the grocery store. Then, it sits on the grocery store shelf for up to a week. The quality deteriorates and by the time you buy the fish, it is a far cry from its former fresher self. Unless you live by the ocean, the place to get fresh fish is to buy seafood online.

A lot of people hear “seafood online” and not understand how fresh seafood can be delivered and not go bad. How can someone order fresh seafood online? It seems counterintuitive. Delivering fresh seafood is a lot simpler than one might think. This is where Seafood Crate shines. We pride ourselves on being able to deliver on our promise of “Honestly Fresh Seafood Delivered to Your Door”. A customer places an order, selects a delivery date, and the seafood arrives in a special cardboard box, lined with insulation and containing an ice gel pack. This keeps the seafood cool and fresh for 48 hours in transit. The box, insulation, and ice gel packs are all eco-friendly and 100% recyclable.

Buying seafood online reduces waste as well. This is why Seafood Crate has an order deadline. After the deadline, they compile all their customers’ orders and then order only this specific amount from their fishermen suppliers. When you buy fresh seafood online from Seafood Crate, your fish is still swimming in the ocean! There’s no leftover fresh seafood in a warehouse waiting to be sold. Ordering exact portions means no waste because nothing needs to be thrown away. There’s no overstock.

Food waste is a serious problem. Other companies that sell seafood online specialize in selling frozen seafood. Frozen seafood is completely fine—especially with products like squid, octopus, shrimp, and lobster. But fish like salmon, tuna, and halibut are best eaten fresh. Seafood Crate gets their fresh seafood in on Mondays. They process the fish themselves on site, then vacuum seal them. Then the seafood is shipped out right away. This is the benefit of to buying seafood online with Seafood Crate.

Buying seafood online is not a traditional way of getting seafood. But it is so much more convenient. With so many things to do in a day, with so little time, buying seafood online makes a world of a difference and saves a lot of time. As long as you plan ahead you can get premium, fresh seafood delivered to your doorstep consistently. Seafood Crate makes the process easy and reduces the impact to the environment. This is the future of buying seafood online.
