Why Frozen Fish is Better than Fresh Fish?
It is common perception that “Fresh” fish is always superior to frozen fish and is of a higher quality for consumption. However, “Fresh” does not equate to better value. With modern technological advancements, fish caught freshly out of the sea can be flash frozen directly on the boat, just minutes after being caught. Thus a frozen fish can be better than a fresh fish offering consumers the freshest product at the best overall value
