After the beach, vacationers start thinking about where to eat. So go native. Dine at a St. Augustine restaurant that serves fresh fish and shellfish which live or migrate through Florida’s coastal waters.

How do you find fresh caught Florida seafood? Simply ask, “What’s in season?” And ask about the chef’s daily seafood specials. The fish you eat may have been caught by local fisherman yesterday.

In general Floridians are passionate about their seafood. We love eating fish sandwiches outdoors under an umbrella table, or getting together for a seafood boil in the backyard with family. Eating seafood is part of Florida’s lifestyle. Clams, oysters, scallops, crab claws, spiney lobster and rock lobster are seasonal specialties, and the first choice of locals in the know.

Are you trying to eat healthy? Did you know some of Florida’s most popular fish—grouper, flounder, mahi mahi, tilapia and yellowfin tuna—are all excellent sources of low-fat protein? Fish that contain more fat—that omega-3 “good” fat—include Spanish and king mackerel, swordfish, bluefish and trout. Some call it “brain food,” but all seafood is high in protein.

Even more important, when you eat fresh caught seafood at a local restaurant you support sustainable fishing. By law, Florida fisherman must follow sustainable fishing practices when harvesting species of seafood, taking just enough to keep the fish population healthy. The idea is to allow another generation to flourish and multiply in our estuaries and bays. Florida’s coastal waters are actually our seafood nurseries.
