CATALINA OFFSHORE PRODUCTS

After 25 years in business Catalina Offshore Products is one of the largest seafood import and export companies in California. The original founders of the company still oversee the day to day operations to maintain the level of quality and customer service that allowed them to grow so successfully.

Seafood selections come directly from reputable fishermen who catch seafood throughout the waters of Southern California and Baja California. Catalina Offshore Products maintain strict handling procedures to preserve the freshness and quality of the products they deliver. Most fishing is done with hand lines to save the environment and maintain the earths natural resources. Catalina Offshore Products offers a no frills website but it's packed with a lot of information including recipes, sushi making kits, vivid pictures, and more.

For those looking for fresh quality seafood at a great price, Catalina Offshore Products is the place to shop. You can enjoy lower priced selections of seafood such as live lobsters, sushi meat, fresh fish, and shrimp. You can also anticipate lower shipping costs at Catalina Offshore Products. While the selection and variety are a little lower, they hit the mark with value for your dollar. We think lower priced fresh quality seafood is exactly what many customers are looking for.

In the event you aren't happy with your purchase as a result of delivery delays or an error by the company, Catalina Offshore Products will refund your money back, or you can save it as a credit on any future orders.

Along with their seafood, Catalina Offshore Products also offers some unique gift ideas. In addition to sushi samplers and gift cards, they even offer a seafood of the month club for that seafood lover in your life.

For those looking for sushi, fish, or value-oriented seafood selections, Catalina Offshore Products is a great place to start. Their products are very affordable, and we appreciated their attention to the customer. They earn high marks for offering quality seafood at very affordable prices.

THE CRAB PLACE

The Crab Place motto pretty much sums it up "Maryland Seafood Delivered from our dock to your door." Greg Cain started The Crab Place in 1997 in Crisfield, Maryland. As the business grew more family members and others joined the team. The company began by selling and shipping fresh Maryland crab caught daily by local watermen and now offers a comprehensive seafood delivery website.

Despite the name, The Crab Place provides a plethora of fresh seafood options including live lobster, oysters, fresh fish, shrimp, breaded seafood and several crab varieties. We really liked the look of the website , the ease of use, the clear attractive pictures and the easy search maneuverability.

If you're looking for a gift at The Crab Place they mainly offer gift cards but you are easily able to make any selection and the check out process allows you to include a gift message.

The Crab Place says they offer the guaranteed lowest price on the web, when we compared their prices to several competitors we found they were a little on the high end. However, if you join their yearly VIP club for $49.00 the shipping costs drop in half making your total cost lower priced than most.

In the event you aren't satisfied as a result of product spoilage or a high mortality rate on live crabs, upon the shipments arrival, The Crab Place will replace free of charge.

In the end we really enjoyed the website including the layout, professionalism, pictures, check out process and ease in finding the information we were looking for. If live crabs are what you are after The Crab Place should probably be your first choice. But, we felt that without the VIP membership the prices were a little steep.
