Fresh Fish Market is excellent. They have fresh seafood - we love their stone crabs. They also have an adjacent restaurants that you can just order your food.

You are going to have to check the internet because many restaurants close right now to prepare for season. We do like the Old Marco Inn on the river. Stan's fish seems all to be fried.

Wynn's Market on 41 near downtown has the biggest and best selection at reasonable prices. Most of the others we tried are high priced and not always good quality.

The cost of fresh fish and seafood in Naples is absurd. We got better quality for far less money in Chicago.

Swan River has good lobster tails, most other places don't.

Tks, but our question really revolves in the Area of Whether The Local Seafood is edible or not with the problems of the Red Tide.

Here's the answer for you. Red tide is along the coast and in the bays. There's no fish in there. Once you get out a few miles into deeper water. (it's 45 to 60 miles to 100' depth) there are bait and fish. Go out a little farther and your off the shelf. it drops off quickly. Grouper snapper dolphin and other good eating fish are out there. Not many commercial fishermen left here as it's a lot shorter run to other places in Florida closer good fishing grounds. The government has imposed very restrictive fishing laws.


Red tide seems to be on the outgo but it takes awhile for the turtle grass to come back and the estuaries and near shore fishing to recover.

PS Have some fun. Take a charter from Marco to the L tower and catch your dinner.

Naplesfan.... You hit the nail right on the head. Thanks for your information.

I moved out of the Largo/Indian Rocks Beach Area of the Suncoast back in 1968...17 yrs there and maybe just ONCE we had a Red Tide Problem...

I buy my fresh seafood Naples Fish Market on Collier Blvd. They will fillet them for me and I get to look the fish in the eyes so I know they are fresh. So you get to look at the whole fish before you decide what you want. I was told that these fish come from the keys. We love the fresh shrimp even though the wife doesn't like cleaning them. I also see the prices as being reasonable.

Any place else which is not on the coast with their own marketplace really does not have fresh fish. Maybe not too old, but when you've dined on fresh, you know the difference. Yes, in Michigan, with their own boats, had fresh White Fish and it was as tasty as most fish down here. And you can't beat fresh Lake Perch, which is offered at the Real Seafood Company. So yes, there is excellent fresh water fish (walleye).
