Fresh Seafood

When it comes to seafood, we're proud to offer our customers the freshest product, the widest selection and the best pricing in our service area.  There is no stronger case for using a center-of-the-plate protein specialist like Buzz than the area of fresh seafood.  As an example, what you won't hear from your broadline sales rep is that salmon is not just salmon.  We're able to offer everything from fresh Alaskan King Salmon (when in season) to Bay of Fundy and Scottish varieties, down the line to a more common and cost-effective Atlantic Salmon.  We enjoy educating customers and helping them decide what the right products and price points are for their operation.  Ask your Buzz rep for this week's list of fresh exotic species.


Seafood Varieties

From Abalone to Zander, if it swims, we can source it.  The product and supplier selectivity that have made us great for so many years in the beef business today make us equally great as a seafood supplier.  We're pleased to offer customers more than 150 fresh varieties of seafood including, but certainly not limited to, arctic char, bass, branzini, catfish, clams, cod, crabmeat, crawfish, flounder, fluke, frog legs, grouper, halibut, hamachi, john dory, lobsters, marlin, mussels, nairagi, oysters, perch, pollock, salmon, scallops, shark, shrimp, snapper, soft shell crabs, sole, squid, steelhead, swordfish, tilapia, trout, tuna, turbot, walleye, and wolffish, to name just a few.

Points of Origin

Connoisseurs of fresh seafood know that once the catch hits port, every minute, hour and day is critical to protecting quality.  The quicker the catch is packed, processed and delivered to market, the better the freshness and flavor.  That's precisely why Buzz is committed to delivering the region's freshest seafood as quickly as possible.  Our seafood is purchased within hours of hitting the shore, then either processed on site or immediately chilled for processing at our partner facility in Pittsburgh, PA.  Fresh catches originate from a variety of ports on the East Coast and from as far away as Alaska and Hawaii, and it's all delivered to the end user within 48 hours.  Ask your Buzz sales rep about product originating from Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Maine, Boston, Cape Cod, Rhode Island, Long Island, Fulton Market, Chesapeake Bay, Virginia, the Carolinas, Gulf of Mexico, Hawaii and Alaska. 

Frozen & Convenience Items

There are many seafood varieties that frankly perform better for the end user if handled frozen, rather than fresh, including shrimp, seabass and breaded cod, just to name a few.  Our product line of 150 fresh varieties is complimented by more than 3,000 convenience items.  While we find many customers treat these frozen items like groceries to be purchased from any vendor, trusting a specialist like Buzz to supply the highest quality product at a fair price remains critically important.  Please ask your Buzz sales rep for options and pricing around any frozen seafood item, and we think you'll be happy with the results.  Also, add a few great seafood items to your menu, and you'll find yourself in need of any number of compliments: cocktail sause, horseradish, tartar sauce, relish, old bay seasoning, fresh lemons, oyster crackers, and the list goes on and on.  Please don't forget, Buzz can be your source for those items too!
