News of Clark County - B&B Fish Market Swimmingly Successful!

B&B Fish Market

Growing up in Alaska, I was spoiled with plenty of fresh salmon, halibut, and crab. Bernie also grew up close to fresh seafood, so we are both very particular about what we buy.  Local supermarkets are sometimes OK, but uneven in the quality and availability. So it was a delight to learn last year that B&B Fish Market was coming to Camas.

Opened by the Bellamy family - Zetta (the Mom), Robert & Janel - they come from a line of fifth-generation sports fishermen who have enjoyed the fresh catch and shellfish of the Pacific Northwest for years.  They decided to share their passion for fresh-caught seafood by starting their own shop in a converted old home on 5th Ave in downtown Camas.  

As with any new business, we wanted to give them time to get settled before writing a review.  Since then, we have had the pleasure to visit them many times over the year, and we are pleased to report they are doing just fine!  Their fresh selection is always good - including this week, local fresh Chinook salmon.  

B&B Smoked Salmon

We recently learned they do quite a bit of smoked fish that they can ship nationwide. Their salmon, steel head, halibut, and sole jerky are all smoked in house using a combination of alder, cherry,  and apple woods.  They also offer a variety of flavors - honey, pepper, even spicy, and a sample pack if you're not sure which one you'd like.

(Side note: On a recent visit, my husband discovered not only the fresh-caught Chinook, but also "Hoppin' John's Best Oyster Knife I've Ever Used."  He was intrigued because, as a kid growing up near the Chesapeake Bay, he is very familiar with all types of oysters and how to properly shuck them. So he did his research, and on his next trip he bought one. Unfortunately, B&B's oysters are so popular - they were all out that day.  We'll test drive it this weekend and report back!)

So check out their website, and if you're ever in downtown Camas, drop by.  They are very knowledgeable and friendly, and you can expect the freshest seafood in the area.

Debb and Bernie,  Fresh fish was plentiful in my home growing up as well. I've never been a fan of crab or lobster (I know, cheap date) however halibut was my #1 favorite. Second in line ... salmon.  Now you have good fresh fish to enjoy at your local B&B Fish Market.

Debb and Bernie, fresh fish was plenty when I was growing up, even in NY but not that easy to find in Central FL unless one is willing to drive two hours. I bookmarked this post so I could visit B&B Fish Market's website.

Debb, I didn't know Bernie grew up near the Chesapeake Bay. So cool! I would love to visit B & B Fish Market. There's just nothing like fresh seafood and I agree, the quality just isn't consistent in grocery stores. Wonderful shout out for them!

Hi Debb - That photo has my mouth watering and B&B looks like a great find. We're pretty far away from any sources of fresh seafood - our best option is Whole Foods, but the prices are super high, so whenever I'm on a coast, seafood is what I concentrate on.

This is a wonderful recommendation for area residents and visitors. Chef Dolores would love this market that would remind her of her times when living in Alaska and Washington.
