If fresh is what you are looking for then fresh is what you have found. Our scallops cannot get any fresher. We currently have a fleet of boats that sell scallops directly to us hours after being caught.
These scallops are called "dayboat" scallops. They are literally caught and sold to us within one day.
Unfortunately, at times, mother nature and fishing restrictions put a damper on dayboat production at which point we do have to purchase scallops from out of state.
