How’s my frozen catfish order packed?

What makes the frozen catfish taste clean and mild?
The taste properties of what they eat appear to be adopted by fish. The biologically designed diet of high-protein pellets that settle on the surface of the water is fed to the catfish we farm, resulting in a typically moderate, mildly sweet taste.
Why are the fish delivered frozen instead of fresh?
Nothing beats the flavour of fresh fish and shellfish out of the sea. If you can catch the fish yourself and prefer cooking and preparing it, or if you live anywhere near coastal areas and can buy local, fresh catch seafood, then you are indeed lucky. However several days after the fish is caught and stuffed, it starts to lose its quality; the microbe begins working, and the taste steadily changes within a week or more. After 2 weeks, nearly all "fresh" unfrozen fish may no longer be consumable.
Fortunately, seafood that is flash-frozen using specialized equipment that freezes fragile fish meat in a matter of minutes prevents the process of breakdown. You may then keep this well-frozen fish in a very fresh condition for months, thaw it and cook it whenever you want to eat, retaining its fresh taste. Our frozen fish is typically fresher and tastier than fresh fish. It's what we serve to our families, and we know that if you try this, it's what you'll want to eat.
