"High-end fish market to open in Myers Park

A high-end fish market is headed to Crosland's Tranquil Court on Selwyn.

Clean Catch Fish Market specializes in responsibly fished and caught seafood, according to the company. The market will provide weekly tasting demonstrations and classes on how to prepare and cook the fish. The store will also offer prepared items such as Ahi-tuna meatballs and wild salmon burgers. Fish will come from places such as the Carolina coast, California, Hawaii and New England.

"We want to teach people they don't need to be afraid of fish," said Bill Ryan, owner and partner of Clean Catch Fish Market.

The store is scheduled to open midsummer. Tranquil Court at Selwyn is a mixed-use project at Selwyn and Tranquil avenues in Myers Park."

    Clean Catch is now OPEN! Bought some lovely swordfish and was delighted to see on my receipt the origin of the fish (hawaii), the method of its capture (line caught) and that it's wild. Kudos to the folks at Clean Catch for the detailed info, the fabulous fish and the great service. They've only been open for 3 days, so the shop is still fleshing things out, but it's encouraging to see a locally-owned fish market in Charlotte with an emphasis on responsibly fished seafood. I will be back!

      I have been looking forward to this place opening I will check it out soon. You touched on many detail but not the price. How much was the swordfish per lb.?

        How do we get one of these in the Triangle area? I didn't see a link to the Charlotte shop in the news article in the first post above. Nor does a Google search bring up anything other than articles about the Charlotte store. Anyone got a corporate site, address or phone number? Let's petition them to open a store here. We need more fresh seafood choices in this area.

          apologies for not replying on the price of the swordfish! i've since been back and had some amazing walu. also some halibut that was cut to order from the entire fish as i watched. i'm thinking prices were approaching $20/lb but i'm not certain. i will say that i have been buying smaller portions there than in earth fare (my previous source for fresh fish) and find i am not left wanting at the end of a meal. there's so much flavor i'm not missing the extra ounces! typically my fish for 2 adults costs me around $12-14 depending on the variety, if that helps. we usually get portions of about 5oz ea.
