From the Proprietor
This past Monday we sampled our boiled shrimp with pico de gallo for guests at the hCG Kickoff Event hosted by Live Oak Pharmacy. The event was a great success and we were able to educate guests about various hCG diet friendly fish we have in the market! Check out our pictures of the event on our Flickr photostream.
As a member of the Airport Boulevard Advisory Group, I would like to invite you to attend PhotoVoice on Sat, June 25th, 2011 from 9am-10am. PhotoVoice is for people who care about Airport Boulevard (especially those that live and work in the corridor) coming together to create pictures and words that form a compelling presentation of their shared aspirations for the boulevard. Please RSVP via e-mail to email@example.com. For more details on the Airport Blvd. Project or PhotoVoice please click here.

Thought for the Week
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
In the coming weeks Quality Seafood will be introducing Gulf Wild™
into the market! Gulf Wild™ is the first of its kind to provide real-time tracking of Gulf of Mexico seafood back to its original suppliers, thereby ensuring the safety and authenticity of wild-caught finfish in the Gulf. The uniquely numbered gill tag on every Gulf Wild™ fish tracks it all: Who harvested your fish, from where within the expansive Gulf waters, even at what port your fish landed. And we put it all on this website
for the world to see. Quality Seafood will keep you posted as to when our first shipment arrives!
