Fulton Fish Drop Reviews
Fulton Fish Drop Unboxing by MealFinds
We were super excited to try the Fulton Fish Drop as we are big fish eaters, eating fish several times a week, and have heard amazing things about the quality and diversity of seafood at the famous Fulton Fish Market. We also like to support sustainable fishing practices and American fishermen, and the Fulton Fish Drop does both.
For our Fulton Fish Drop reviews, we ordered the “Fulton Faves: Tuna, Salmon, and Halibut” box. This box includes 4 six oz. portions of Salmon, 2 six oz. portions of wild #1 Yellowfin Tuna (aka ahi tuna), and 2 six oz. portions of wild Atlantic Halibut. When you order through Cratejoy you have the ability to choose from 11 different box options and all deliveries come with FREE shipping. You can also order directly through TheFishDrop and have 14 different box choices available.
When we “dove” into the FishDrop box we were delighted to see the quality of the fresh fish shining through in the color and texture with good-sized portions of each selection. We decided to grill the halibut, simply seasoned with salt and pepper and lemon, along with the tuna which we marinated in a teriyaki sauce. We paired the fish with grilled asparagus, corn, and baked potatoes. The fish tasted amazing and you could really taste the quality and freshness in both fish. They were juicy and not “fishy” tasting at all.
Next up, we marinated the salmon in another teriyaki sauce and grilled them as well, making the most of the cool fall weather before the grilling season is over. We grilled the salmon for 6 min per side and they came out perfect! Juicy and flavorful with crispy skin. We paired the salmon with white rice and baked broccoli and the whole family agreed that this fish was delicious. You don’t know what you are missing until you have had fresh, high-quality fish.
After you taste fish from The FishDrop, you won’t go back to grocery store fish ever again.
Fulton Fish Drop Reviews: How much does the Fulton Fish Drop subscription cost?
You can purchase a FishDrop subscription from Cratejoy or directly from the FishDrop website.
The price of the Fulton FishDrop subscription varies depending upon the type of fish box that you select and the delivery frequency. Boxes range in price from $64.95 to $349.95 and can be delivered weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly to customers within the United States. All boxes come with FREE shipping and are delivered on Thursdays unless you request an alternate delivery date.
We love that this is a flexible subscription, meaning that you can easily pause, change, or cancel your subscription through your account at any time. So if you want to skip a week because you are out of town, want to add more fish because friends are coming over, or wanted to try out a seafood subscription without a major commitment you can!

We highly recommend Fulton Fish Drop! The fish arrived fresh and tasted wonderful. We love that the Fish Drop only uses sustainably sourced fish and supports American fishermen. And also love that through Craetjoy you have 11 different box options (on the FishDrop site you have 14 choices), FREE shipping, and a flexible subscription.
We are incredibly lucky to live on the East Coast near wonderful fresh fish markets and have a Whole Foods store, which has a variety of sustainably sourced fish, around the corner from our home. But many Americans aren’t as lucky and don’t have the ability to get really fresh, high-quality fish on a regular basis. If you are a fish-lover like we are, but don’t have access to quality, sustainably sourced fish, you should consider the Fulton Fish Drop. You won’t be disappointed.
BONUS: You can give Fulton Fish Drop as a gift via Cratejoy to all of your fish-loving family and friends!
