Ahi Seafood Market is Fairhope’s newest stop for fresh, local, responsibly sourced and high-quality seafood that you serve at your very own dinner table.

When it comes to seafood, owner and Fairhope resident Don Rhodes assures his customers that they are in good hands.

“I grew up in a community built on the seafood business. Fishing doesn’t only run in my family—it runs in my blood. The relationships and knowledge I made there will be instrumental in supplying Ahi Seafood Market, and the entire Gulf Coast, with the finest local seafood available.”

When it comes to quality, Ahi Seafood Market doesn’t mess around. They make sure to source their seafood from sources that keep the sustainability of the environment, fish and community in their best interests.

The options offered at the market, are flash-frozen by the fishermen Ahi Seafood Market sources from.

“Flash-freezing is a modern process that in many ways is better for the consumer and the environment. It prevents bacteria from forming and locks in the fullest flavor by pushing extremely cold air across a product at a high speed in order to freeze it as quickly as possible. Doing this prevents ice crystals from forming or affecting the tissue, thus preserving the fish naturally. It also allows for a slower transport that uses less emissions.”
