Have Questions About Wholesale? We Have Answers!

Q. Do you have minimum wholesale order?

Q. How do I know my seafood is safe?

A. Fresh Catch Seafood follows strict FDA and HACCP guidelines for the handling, storage and transportation of all seafood products. All orders leaving our packing and shipping facility are packed for refrigerated delivery.

Q. How often do your prices change?

A. Seafood prices will always be subject to change. Being such a highly coveted and perishable product, fresh seafood is subject to regular price fluctuations. We do everything possible within our control to minimize price changes however the reasons may include such things as fuel costs, weather delays, natural disasters, government regulations, and seasonal changes in supply and demand to name just a few.

Q. Is Mercury a concern?

A. Mercury is a metal that is both naturally occurring in nature and a by-product of the burning of fossil fuels. Mercury is a contaminant and poses a health risk to humans when ingested in sufficient quantities. Most fish and shellfish contain trace amounts of mercury, although the amount varies from species to species. Mercury collects in the fatty tissues of living organisms and the amounts vary depending on the creature’s diet, lifespan, and habitat. Long lived top predators like shark and swordfish will absorb more mercury than shrimp and sardines. Although it is a good idea to limit the consumption of some of the more ‘at risk’ species, there has never been a single published clinical diagnosis linking the health effects of mercury to the consumption of seafood in the United States.

Q. What if I’m dissatisfied with my order?

A. All of our product is guaranteed fresh and of the highest quality. Please inspect your order upon delivery before accepting it. If you do accept the order you may not return it to our location as this violates FDA regulations.
