Our Fresh Fish: Harnessing Mother Nature

Posted on Nov 10, 2018 in Fish Processing, Fresh, Fresh Fish

At Channel Fish Processing, we proudly offer fresh, frozen and value-added products, all under one roof. Choosing to cater to both fresh and frozen was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Here’s why:

Harnessing Mother Nature
Our fresh fish supply is as fresh as it gets. With the plentiful oceans of New England, we are able to harness the wild fish of this region. Our fresh catch is always unpredictable, as we can’t tell what the weather will bring and the commercial boats will pull in. This is one exciting aspect of serving fresh product: not farm raised, not controlled- in other words, delicious products.

We Buy From Boats Daily
Our fresh fish is bought every morning, straight from commercial fishing boats at the auction. These predominant, New England species are hand-selected by our experts, and taken to our facility in Braintree. We now cut and portion roughly 100,000 lbs of fresh fish every day in this energy efficient, eco-friendly facility.

From Sea-to-Plate
We love that we can bring our customers fresh quality from sea-to-plate. Though some of our frozen supplies come from countries all around the world, the quality and species of fresh fish found in this region of the U.S. is unbeatable. It’s important for us to highlight this, and we love that we can bring this natural, fresh quality to the market with our full-cyle process.

We have long-standing relationships with major fresh fish harvesters, and our employees at the auction every day make our fresh offerings possible.
