Fresh, local seafood

We're considering traveling to Aruba this November to celebrate our 15-year anniversary. I have Celiac disease and a few other food allergies and tend to do all my cooking in so I don't have issues at restaurants.

I'd love to still be able to enjoy plenty of fresh seafood. In fact, I can't tolerate most of it frozen due to the preservatives and high histamine content. Are there fish markets or places where local fishermen sell really fresh stuff? I have no idea what area we'll be staying in yet. Thanks!

you can find local fish fresh caught from the sea,when the fishermens come in around 10-11am at Hadicurari Pier. they usually sell the catch to the Hadicurari restaurant located there. Moomba Beach is also right next to the Hadicurari Restaurant.

Probably, you can get fresh fish at Super Foods or Ling and Son's grocery stores also.

Last time we went to Zeerovers to buy fresh shrimps and were told that they are not selling fresh seafood anymore, only cooked meals. They actually sold us shrimps but I'm not sure if I will try to buy it again. Unfortunately they deep fry all seafood they cook... Any recent updates? Do they still sell fresh seafood or not anymore?

Is there any place in Aruba that you can buy the fish from the fishermen and then take it to a restaurant and they cook it for you?
