Where to buy the freshest fish?

The OCU (The Organization of Consumers and Users) in Spain revealed which supermarkets in Spain offer the freshest, top-quality fish. 

The Organization surveyed 4,000 consumers, evaluating 38 supermarket chains across the country, and discovering the best offers. 

The supermarket chain, Costco, was announced as the frontrunner in the fish market. It stood out with a score of 93 out of 100 for quality seafood ratings but Cosco´s limited accessibility with only four stores in Spain, marks its disadvantage. 

The supermarket following faces the same issue; Escalat can only be found in Catalonia, having received a quality fish rating of 88 out of 100.

The OCU study also listed the supermarkets with the poorest quality seafood, including Aldi, Lidl and Coviran as the least recommended.

In Costa Blanca, Mercadona and Consum are the most well-reviewed supermarkets for fresh sea products, as the Euro Weekly News have found in their past survey.

In many towns, fish markets still take place and although the shopping experience is very different, it is a great opportunity to explore local, fresh products surrounded by stunning sea views.
