Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Chefs and Buyers,
Cod landings into Massachusetts' ports continue to rise and are forcing prices down. We have great deals on dayboat fish for you. Other ground fish prices should be moving in the same direction soon.
Golden Tile from the south are available in a range of sizes from 2-20 lbs. Give us a call if you need larger fish they are moving out fast.
From Florida we have American Red Snappers 2-8lbs, these are crudo quality from one of our favorite short trip guys out of Apalachicola, Fl. Off of the same boat we have just a few 2-4lb Pompano. Also from Florida are fresh shrimp sized 16/20..really good eating shrimp and harvested responsibly on boats with by catch exclusion devices.
Striped bass (morone saxatilis) will have closures occurring sometime next week, but for the time being we have nice fish coming out of Virginia, and the Chesapeake Bay area. We have some corvina (argyrosomus regius) that cuts the same and is sold headed and gutted for a great yield, if you want to try an alternative.
Dover sole is available again and we have a few extra sized 18/20 for delivery Tuesday. We will be buying again from the European auctions today for Thursday delivery, so if you need some get in touch with us today for your weekend needs.
Also available: black sea bass, Nantucket bays, Pemaquid mussels, and Chilean Turbot.
