Fish 101

Here at The Original Oyster House, we strive to provide the freshest seafood, at the best prices.  We take pride in the quality and preparation of our seafood, as well as seafood’s health benefits.  Here we provide you with information on the quality and health benefits of our fare:

Our Fish…

 We buy our fish from the cold, North Atlantic waters from fishermen who have the latest method of cleaning and filleting their catch as it is hauled in. 
They clean and fillet the fish, flash freeze it and send it to us, where we thaw it for the first time when we need it, so we provide you with an unbelievable freshness and tastier meal. 
Seafood is one of the most regulated food sources today that is enjoyed by the majority of American families.  Not only is it regulated, but it’s a family tradition, like our business.  Generations of fishermen, fish-farmers, processors, importers and retailers work together to provide healthy and tasty fish.
It’s the best fish in town and we guarantee it.

Health Benefits of the Sea…

 Seafood is a great source of protein containing omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that benefit the heart, brain and entire body. 
Evidence shows that consumption of about 8 ounces (2 servings) per week of a variety of seafood is associated with reduced cardiac deaths among individuals with and without pre-existing cardiovascular disease. 
For pregnant women, 8 ounces of varied seafood improved health outcomes for infants with visual and cognitive development.  It is recommended this seafood be lower in methyl mercury.
