In mid-July, our farm-raised American red snapper harvested at Tropic Seafood Ltd. was taste tested along with an equal number of wild caught lane snapper. The farm-raised American red snapper had been harvested that same day while the lane snapper previously frozen. Both types of snapper were prepared and cooked by local culinary chefs, and a taste test ensued.
Consensus was that the farm-raised snapper had a more delicious, flaky texture, and a great flavor. The local restaurant owners and chefs were extremely pleased, and look forward to future purchase and production of Tropic Seafood farm-raised American red snapper.
