Aqua Best Seafood Market traces its roots back to the teeming trade of the Fulton Fish Market, where the current owner's parents ran a small mom-and-pop seafood shop that sourced its wares directly from fisherfolk up and down the East Coast. Continuing the family's proud tradition of searching the seas for the finest ocean eats, staffers fill dinner tables with fish, crustaceans, clams, and shrimp. Their catches come from around the globe and across America, from the colossal dungeness crab—the pride of the Pacific Northwest⎯to live Maine lobsters and rare Fourchu lobsters from Nova Scotia. The eco-conscious merchants carefully harvest their seafood in a strictly seasonal manner, making sure to leave natural populations thriving and sustainable. With their close business ties to fisheries throughout the world, and strong relationships with chefs and culinary schools, Aqua Best Seafood Market caters to any palate, with seafood feasts ranging from the complex flavors of caviar to the rich tastes and silky texture of arctic char.
