"Great lesson !!!" ★★★★★
"It was very clear and easy to understand and very useful for me. Thank you:-)" ★★★★★
"Even as a person who claimed to know quite a bit about fish in general. I learned I had allowed myself to be very complacent in the quality of fish available. I now have the confidence in buying that goes along with the knowledge of what to look for. I realize I knew nothing of the proper storage methods and I think this would be most valuable and eye opening to most people." ★★★★★
