Shipping and Handling Information
At Serenity Seafoods, we own the boats and catch the fish. We have partnered with a local fisherman-owned custom processor to cut, portion, vacuum seal, flash freeze and label our catch immediately after we bring it to the dock.
Our fish is stored in cold storage, between -10 and 10 degrees, until we receive your order. Then the fish is pulled and packaged in an insulated box with layers of dry ice and sustainable foam to ensure your fish stays frozen solid until delivery.
We currently prepare our web orders for shipment once a week to ship out on Mondays using UPS Overnight Delivery*. Orders must be received by 8AM PST to ensure delivery that week.
Upon receiving your box, immediately open and check the condition of your fish. Your fish should be frozen solid. If your fish has thawed, refuse the shipment and contact us immediately. While rare, sometimes shipping delays out of our control can effect the condition of your product. We will gladly replace your order at no cost if there is an issue.
If there is dry ice left in your box, put on a pair of gloves and place any remaining dry ice in your sink to thaw and disappear. Gently place your frozen seafood products in your freezer for future enjoyment. It is best to thaw your portions under refrigeration. Cook and enjoy!
*If you have a local order, or In-State order, please contact us at email@example.com to make seperate shipping arrangements. Thank you.
