Porgy Fillets (Scup)


15-17 oz

Porgies, also called scup or sea bream, are a plentiful and sustainable in the Northwest Atlantic and is a by-product of fishing for conch. Popular with fishermen, but often unpopular with cooks because of the bones, we offer fillets with all bones removed for easy preparation. Expect a tender and lean whitefish fillet, similar to snapper.

Red's Best uses advanced freezer technology to super-freeze their locally caught fish and shellfish to temperatures below -61 degrees Fahrenheit for a minimum of 24 hours. They perform this process as it is necessary to reduce the risk of consuming raw, wild seafood. Red's Best commercial super freezer accelerates the freezing process, and preserves the texture of the proteins by reducing the expansion of water molecules within the flesh of the seafood. The porgy are flash frozen and vacuum sealed at peak freshness from the ocean. Each packaged item provides the transparent catch data to harvest your local catch; the fisherman, vessel, port of origin, and gear used. All our seafood selections are evaluated based location and catch or aquaculture method as a recommended by the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch.
