What Does It Mean To Be
FISHMONGER APPROVED?

Fishmongers are seafood experts. A fishmonger knows best how to source, filet and distribute fish. An experienced fishmonger can easily identify quality seafood by look, taste and smell. When The Fishmonger says something is "Fishmonger Approved" it means that it has earned a seal of approval as a Best In Class  product, restaurant, recipe or service.
