What seafood will I get?

Our goal is to provide you with the best, freshest fish. Buying only from NJ harvesters means that we are limited to local conditions and what fisherpeople are catching.

We can’t say for sure what we will have each week until the week it’s caught! We will send you a fish reveal messages few days before you pick up letting you know the Catch of the Week.

Common species include:

black sea bass, clams, dogfish, flounder, oysters, scallops, skate, tilefish, tuna

Some species are only available at certain times of the year (such as dogfish); see the table below for more about seasonal availability.

Seasonal Availability

When you're eating only fresh, unfrozen seafood, not all fish is available all year round! Here's a breakdown of fishing seasons off of the Jersey coast where we source all of our fish.
