Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Hi Chefs and Buyers,
Tomorrow is our last delivery before Christmas, are you covered? We have a good supply of staple items like salmon, tuna (all grades), northern groundfish (ie. cod, skate, monk), dry scallops and a full line of frozen.
Specials available to ship you Thursday morning include:
From Florida - Red Grouper (5-10lbs), Pink Snapper (1lb average), Fresh Octopus, and Mahi-mahi
From Long Island - Green Christmas Eels, Steamer Clams, and Bluefish.
From Nova Scotia - Dayboat Halibut (very nice and selling fast)
From Maine - Just in time for Christmas! Sweet Maine Shrimp.
From New Zealand - Cockles, Green lip Mussels, and John Dory.
We still have a few pieces of Siberian Sturgeon, Hiramasa, Irish Steelhead Trout, and Char to name a few.
Our feature oyster today is the Pearl Point from Netarts Bay in Oregon. This area fed by two small, pristine mountains streams, has higher than average salinity. The combination of salinity and water purity produces an oyster with a pleasing flavor and cantaloupe finish. The oyster is typically 3 to 3-1/2 inches in size.
