Ocean's Table is a new seafood subscription service that is setting itself apart by making freshness a top priority. In the same way that there are numerous farm-to-table restaurants, Ocean's Table describes: "our fresh fish comes directly from the ocean to your table."
The seafood subscription is available in several different options, including the Tasting Sampler, Fisherman's Choice and Captain's Select, which provide enough fish to feed between two to five people. Some of the kinds of fresh fish and seafood that can be ordered in this way include scallops, halibut, haddock, swordfish and tuna; customers ordinarily receive their purchase from Ocean's Table after just 12 to 24 hours of filleting.
The Ocean's Table facility is located on the Gloucester Harbor, so that when local fishermen return with a catch, the products are quickly prepared, packaged and shipped. With this direct-to-consumer approach, Ocean's Table bypasses stores and middlemen, as it notes that "Our team of fishermen, fish cutters, and packaging handlers have decades of experience and a long tradition of working on the ocean. They fully understand the proper way to prepare and package fresh fish."
