Seafood Update

Hi Chefs and Buyers,
Halibut continues to be very tight, so please order ahead if possible. We are getting a good mix of wild Icelandic, and farmed Norwegian fish. Both are stellar in rigor and fat halibut. Size range for these fish are in the 5lb to 20lb range.
Our Australian shipment arrived today with beautiful hiramasa, and onaga and we still have a small amount of opah.
The cold waters of the North Atlantic have blessed us with the winters sweetness in the form of Nantucket Bay scallops and Maine shrimp (many still have roe attached). Our friend Rod Taylor is also sending us his live Taylor Bay scallops in the shell, they are the same species as Nantucket and Rod actually supplies much of the seed to replenish the wild bays.
Swordfish continues to run strong and we have some big fish from the African coast that came with our #1 Tuna.
From Florida we have a fresh Octopus that is trap caught along with Stone Crab.
Striped bass from Maryland continues to run strong with some nice big fish 15-20lbs making their appearance along with the usual 5-12lb fish.
Chatham day boats are bringing us admirable and in rigor cod bullets that would make a great menu addition.
I have always admired the ability to bite off more than one can chew and then chew it."
