When you think of Whole Foods Market, the first thing that may come to mind is organic and fresh produce. What you may not know is that their seafood department serves up some of the best quality seafood you can find!

Whether it’s wild-caught, responsibly farmed, fresh or frozen, everything in Whole Foods Market seafood department fits their strict quality standards.

Whole Foods Market only sells wild-caught seafood that is certified sustainable from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or rated “green” or “yellow” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch and The Safina Center.

We wanted to know, what’s the best catch in their Seafood Department right now? So we caught up with Eddie Steadley, Whole Foods Market Seafood Associate Coordinator in Florida to find out.

  1. Stone Crabs! It’s the most anticipated Seafood event in Miami and Whole Foods Market works with Keys Fisheries in Marathon, FL, to bring them straight from the boat to the store. “Our Seafood team will crack them for you, and don’t forget the locally made mustard sauce!”
  2. Take a bite out of Lionfish. “Lionfish are invasive to our waters and cause a lot of destruction. We decided to start selling the fish to help our environment and local fisheries.” But what about the flavor? “Delicious! I created an awesome ceviche recipe for it, I’ll share it with you!”
  3. Yellowtail Snapper. “It’s a local favorite! It’s a great mild, flaky white fish. We source ours from Captain Manny Herrera in Key West, FL.”

Our top tip after meeting with Eddie? Meet your local Whole Foods Market Fishmonger and get tips on how to prepare your favorite fish. They will fillet, clean, peel, or crack your selections for you while you shop.
