We found Wild Caught PH, both an online shop and a retail supplier, that can give you seafood finds sourced from the wild that are then handled meticulously so they're in pristine condition when you get them. Some of their fish is sourced from Palawan and Zamboanga-helping our local fishermen-while some seafood comes from Southeast Asia. Their mackerel, however, is sourced from Europe.
You can finally make authentic takoyaki at home with these baby octopi. Baby Octopus (520 grams) P350
Even for the locally-sourced fish that they sell, you would be hard-pressed to find it locally. Pugita-or octopus, is not exactly something you find in the seafood section every day. That's because their selection comes from suppliers who would usually export them right after catching them.
What's the difference between wild-caught and farmed fish?
The fish that we often get in the groceries come from fish farms. According to Cody Auger, chef and owner of Nimblefish in Portland, Oregon, the difference will come down to "fat content and flavor of fat." Although farmed fish will have more fat because of the nature of farms, wild fish would have had a more diverse diet, and their environment would ultimately make them sweeter and with more, "variation in flavor."
Wild Caught PH also claims that their fish, "is sustainably sourced from their natural habitat" which also means they're organic, having never been "fed with feeds, antibiotics nor preservatives."
