WHAT'S THE MEANING BEHIND FISHMONGER APPROVED?

Fishmongers are seafood experts. A fishmonger knows best how to source, filet and distribute fish. As the former owner and fishmonger of the famous Maximo Seafood Shack in St Petersburg, Florida, I know my way around a fish market, fillet table and kitchen. When I say something is "Fishmonger Approved" it means that it has earned my seal of approval as a top quality product, restaurant, recipe or service and are considered the Best In Class!

If you've come here looking for delicious seafood, cooking tips or fillet lessons, yo​​​​​u've come to the right place. Swim around and enjoy!
