Eat Local: Wild Ocean Seafood

on on .

If you’ve eaten rock shrimp at Dixie Crossroads restaurant in Titusville (and if you’ve eaten at Dixie Crossroads you’ve almost certainly eaten rock shrimp) you’ve probably had seafood supplied by Wild Ocean Seafood Market, a Titusville and Cape Canaveral business. But you needn’t travel to the coast to sample their wild caught wares. You’ll also find their seafood in such places as Harmoni Market, Primo, The Ravenous Pig, Mi Tomatina, Shari Sushi and the kitchens at Loew’s Royal Pacific Resort.

The shrimp start getting a little smaller this time of year, says spokeswoman Cinthia Sandoval. (Actually, they haven’t gotten big yet, but you know what we mean.) But this is a good time of year for crab and catfish. You’ll also find more mullet, whiting, popano, and cobia. And a four-month ban on grouper has been lifted, so watch for more of that fish to show up on local menus.

Wild Ocean Seafood Market is owned by Jeanna and Mike Merrifield andSherri McCoy. You can find them at 710 Scallop Drive (what else?) in Cape Canaveral and 688 S. Park Ave. in Titusville.
