From the Proprietor
Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Japan during their time of struggle. For those of you concerned about the safety of seafood from Japan, please read this article detailing the ongoing monitoring efforts by both the FDA and Japanese government to keep harmful items out of the food supply chain. We at Quality Seafood Market promise to continue sourcing seafood that is safe for consumers without sacrificing quality or freshness. During the early stages of the crisis, we are reminded of the BP oil spill that sent shockwaves throughout Gulf communities and severly affected local economies and fisherman. While the environmental impact was undeniably terrible, the power of misinformation and skepticism did much to hinder local fisheries. We hope that you as consumers will do your part to stay informed about your food supply, while keeping faith in the agencies (both public and private) that are charged with protecting consumer safety. As always, if you have questions about our seafood products, please feel free to contact us.
