At Halperns’ we take great pride in our fresh seafood facility. We are aware that more than any other protein, fresh seafood offers endless versatility of species and menu applications. We know that your seafood choices matter and we strive to source the highest quality raw materials available. Most of our daily offerings come from local day boat fisherman who hand select the fish to our specifications. These fish are traceable by vessel, point of harvest and date. While a majority of our daily fresh selections are wild-caught, we also offer farm raised alternatives with an emphasis on sustainable aquaculture. We participate in Seafood Watch and follow the guidelines set forth by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Once the fresh seafood arrives at our refrigerated docks, all products are checked for quality and then repacked in fresh, clean ice. Our fish is custom cut in house to order so that your fillets or portions have the longest shelf life possible. We also offer a wide variety of whole fish for those chefs who prefer to cut their own.
In Halperns’ fresh seafood department, commitment to quality is applied to every aspect of the cycle. All fillets and portions are specially packed to ensure maximum freshness. The 10K02R packaging system we employ has revolutionized the fresh seafood industry and is an integral part of our cut fish program. These state of the art bags allow the fish to breathe out, but do not allow oxygen or any contaminants into the bags. The fresh fish stays protected from its environment and shelf life is greatly enhanced. This system allows us to customize packaging to your individual specifications and provides you with maximum storing efficiencies. Halperns’ is proud to offer this industry-leading, cutting-edge packaging as a complement and added bonus to our superior fresh seafood program.
Each of our facilities also houses a specially designed live shellfish area maintained at 42°F with controlled humidity. Shellfish is flown in daily directly to our facility complete with point of origin tags depicting the harvest location, harvest date, shipper and shipping date. This information is vital to the success of our shellfish program as well as our stringent HACCP program. We are proud to offer a wide range of oysters based on seasonal availability. Fresh mussels come to us from the Mediterranean, Prince Edward Island and the great state of Maine. In addition, we offer a complete variety of clams and live lobsters, as well as the popular Fresh Stone Crab Claws when available.
By purchasing from environmentally friendly sources, custom cutting and packaging, our practices and operations are unparalleled in the industry. Halperns’ realizes the importance of fresh fish and shellfish on your menu and we have tailored our program to meet the needs of you and your customers. We are committed to providing competitive prices daily and more importantly, the freshest most diverse line of fresh seafood available.
