IBSS 2011 in Review

This week we caught the interest of industry players from around the world during the 2011 International Boston Seafood Show.

After 16 years of presenting eye-catching displays and keeping the secret to the unique taste of our tilapia undisclosed, we finally revealed our top secret at this weeks show: Naturally Infused Saltwater Tilapia. The natural saltwater infusion results in our unique tilapia with a sweet, mild flavor and firm texture - well distinguished from others.  


This year's displays included a historic 1930's Ford  "Model A Huckster" showcasing a fresh fish market at our booth and an outdoor display portraying our commitment to the use of sustainable resources by presenting our branded smart-vehicles and carrying the slogan "Saltwater Tilapia - Sweet. Mild. Firm".


Father and son duo Stanti and Daniel Schonbachler prepared delicious samples of our entire product line: Saltwater Tilapia, Steelhead Trout, Ecuadorian Shrimp and Organic Irish Salmon, cooked in many simple and healthy presentations (recipes to come shortly - stay tuned!).


Our displays exhibited our commitment to sustainable and reliable seafood from old ways to new as well as our willingness to continuously evolve over time.   For pictures from the event, visit us on Facebook.
