If you’re a monger, what’s your favorite fish to fillet?  I am a monger, so I love to fillet the black drum.

If you could give our customers one piece of advice when buying or cooking seafood, what would it be?  When buying seafood, you want to find someone who really knows about fish.  The local supermarkets have butchers cutting the fish, or it comes in pre-cut and/or frozen.  We are fishmongers here.  This is all we do, all day, every day. We know our fish, we know what to look for in terms of quality.
