What You'll Get
Getting the freshest seafood guarantees a hero's reception at the dinner table, unlike getting fresh at the table, which guarantees a punishment meal of bread, water, and braised rocks. Heap your seaplatters with today's deal: delivery of the freshest in certified, sustainably sourced seafood from I Love Blue Sea, a dockside shipper based in San Francisco. Choose one of two options:
- $7 for $14 worth of any seafood
- $30 for an assortment of three dozen oysters plus an oyster knife (a $68 value)
The $10 rush shipping fee (a Groupon exclusive rate) for Northern California locations only is not included in today's deal, but after orders are made online at least 24 hours in advance they may be picked up from the brick-and-mortar business for no extra charge. Free shipping is available for orders that spend more than $50 (not including the Groupon discount) in Northern California locations only. Outside of Northern California shipping costs vary.
The amazingly fresh stock at I Love Blue Sea includes everything scrumptious under the sea. Take advantage of option one and order a two-pound package of whole sardines ($4.47 per pound, two-pound minimum), or rush the most luxurious flavors of the benthic bounty to your door with a fresh five- to six-ounce Maine lobster tail, trap-caught off the East Coast ($13.97). Fillets, such as the Hawaiian albacore tuna loin ($13.77 per pound, two-pound minimum), are sliced straight from the fish and immediately packed and shipped to ensure a flavorful delivery.
For oyster lovers, option two is a dream delivered overnight with a shiny new dreamknife, which doubles as a defense against Freddy Kruger. The three-dozen oyster package (a $68 value) consists of one dozen hand-picked oysters from the freshest of three different varieties for a fun-filled night of delectable shucking.
Martin Reed, the retailing brain behind I Love Blue Sea's brawny eco-friendly service and sustainable sources, is as committed to the ultra-high quality of his seafood as he is to fishing practices that don't threaten species or damage delicate aquatic environments. Shoppers will never run across red-listed species on I Love Blue Sea's website—species that are frequently poached by seemingly reputable companies are also avoided. Fill your stomach and put your mind at ease with I Love Blue Sea's ethical delicacies.
I Love Blue Sea has been featured in the New York Times:
- If you think about what the word “sustainable” means, and you accept the notion that for the most part, the current state of the seafood industry is anything but, it is accountability on the part of purchasers that can move the industry in the right direction. And by taking on a bigger share of the responsibility, retailers like Mr. Reed make it easier for consumers to do the right thing. – Mark Bittman
