Common Questions

Delivery

If I live outside your delivery zone, can I still order?

If you are not within our delivery zone, you can either shop in person at our Bedford retail shop or call the office at 902-403-1178 to arrange a courier order.

What days do you deliver? Is there a cut-off time?

All deliveries occur on Thursdays. For same week delivery please order by Tuesday at midnight. Orders placed after the cut-off time on Tuesday will be fulfilled on the following Thursday.

How much does delivery cost?

We offer free delivery with a minimum order of $60. For smaller purchases, delivery is a $7 flat rate plus applicable taxes per order.

Do I need to be home for a delivery?

Due to the perishable nature of our products, it is best if you are home to receive your order or specify a safe place or person to leave your order within the delivery notes. If you will not be home to receive your order, we ask that you leave a cooler bag or hard cooler with gel packs to maintain freshness and food safety of the order. If you have indicated a place for us to leave your delivery, you assume responsibility for any damaged or stolen parcels.

Can I pick-up my order instead?

Orders placed online within will be fulfilled through our home delivery service. If you’d prefer to shop in person, you can find our products at one of our local retail locations rather than shopping online.

Please contact us directly by phone or email at (902) 403-1178 or hello@afishionado.ca if you are within HRM and want to arrange an order to pick up at our Bedford location.

What happens if I miss my delivery?

If it is not possible to deliver your parcel to you, or if we are not able to reach you by phone, your order will be taken back to our Bedford location for pickup, without refunding any delivery costs. If you have indicated a place for us to leave your delivery, you assume responsibility for any damaged or stolen parcels.

Sustainability and Traceability

What does sustainable fish and seafood actually mean?

We define sustainable seafood as: seafood fished or farmed in a manner that can maintain or increase production in the long term, without jeopardizing the health or function of the web of life in our oceans. According to David Suzuki, “Choosing sustainable seafood is an easy and effective act of consumer power that helps protect our oceans, and sends a strong signal to government and industry leaders that they should do the same. When you do consume seafood, make the most of it by eating sustainably.” We couldn’t have said it better than Dr. Suzuki!

Our commitment is to provide you with traceable seafood from sources we know and trust and to work with responsible local fisheries to ensure we’re minimizing human impact on the oceans. We have taken an extra step to help you identify the sustainable sources in which your fish is coming from directly on our product labels. Find out more about how we source our fish here.

Why do you sell products from outside Nova Scotia?

Fish are migratory species. They need to be managed globally. While we have great stories to celebrate from right here in the Maritimes, we also can celebrate and support good management practices around the world. That’s while you’ll see things like BC sockeye salmon, albacore tuna and some species from Maine on our product list.

How do I know which products are local?

We take pride in our Maritime fisherfolk and want to showcase their amazing products. Our local suppliers are highlighted on each product page throughout our online store as well as on our labels in-store!

General Questions

Can I shop in person?

We offer in person shopping at our two retail locations within HRM.

Are there health benefits of eating fish twice a week?

Fish is rich in protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Studies show two servings of fish per week provides the recommended serving of omega-3 for brain function, visual health, and overall general health. Fish that you can feel good about and makes you feel good – what’s not to love?

We offer custom subscription box services to make it easier than ever to eat enough seafood!

Does using frozen fish change the nutritional value?

The freezing process itself does not reduce the nutritional content of the fish. However, you can lose some of the water content during the thawing process, which can contain some of the water-soluble vitamins and minerals. This is generally lost in very low amounts and is considered a negligible difference.

Should I be concerned about mercury levels in fish?

Generally, fish that are higher in mercury are older, large fish that have been in the ocean for long periods of time – fish like fresh tuna, shark, swordfish, marlin, orange roughy, and escolar.

Fish that are not high in mercury and are not typically a concern include: salmon, char, trout, shellfish, crab, shrimp, trout, herring, haddock, Atlantic mackerel, sole, and lobster.
