Sailing Salmon



It was a morning of fresh produce, musical merriment and flying fish—the July 4th Farmers Market is one to remember as the fishmongers from Aquarius Fish Co. put on a fish toss that had some laughing with delight while others gagged at the smell of airborne salmon.


Simulating the famous fish toss at Pike Place Market in Seattle, the boys from Aquarius looped around the Market throwing a headless salmon back’n forth as they hollered to both market-strollers and vendors “Watch your head, fish coming through,” while handing out business cards to the flabbergasted audience.


This kitschy form of advertisement is just a small part of what you can experience at Aquarius, especially if you’re a fish connoisseur. From Yellowfin tuna to King crab legs to Mediterranean mussels, Aquarius Fish Co. offers an extensive variety of ocean dwellers that’ll liven up your grill or impress your friends at the next sushi party.
