The Charlotte Fish Depot was created by its co-founders Elio Mulas and Vinny Fiscella. Elio and Vinny also own E&L Clam House and have been supplying local restaurants from Naples to Bradenton with fresh lobster and seafood for the past 20 years.
If there is fresh fish to be had, you can rest assured that Elio and Vinny will find it! The team has extensive connections both on the East and West coasts of North America, and often fly their fish in overnight.
Lobster has also become a major focus of the duo, and they recently installed a 10,000 gallon live tank to both receive and ensure that their lobsters are sold ultra- fresh.
Make no mistake, the Charlotte Fish Depot is the preeminent place to shop for top quality seafood at a wholesale prices.
After purchasing 2 doz oysters at a time, several times, and finding them to be the cleanest oysters we've ever purchased, I bought 2 boxes on May 25 for an oyster roast. These were just as clean, and were the fattest, juciest we've seen, and the oyster roast was a smashing success. With a couple dozen steamed oysters left over, we shucked and froze them in a bit of salt water, and made oyster stew yesterday. So glad you opened a retail counter and that we discovered you. Our guests will all be showing up there soon if not already!
