Wild Edibles Seafood Update


Good day Chefs and Buyers,
Another fine day here at Wild Edibles and we are bringing you a great selection of hand picked specialties from the sea.

From the Carolinas we have something a little different, Wreckfish also called Stone Bass comes direct to you from a sustainable fishery that uses traditional hook and line methods of catch. These fish are caught in a way that causes no destruction of bottom habitat and leaves no discarded by catch. The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Guide rates wreckfish "Best Choice" for sustainability. We are quite sure you will give it a "best choice" rating for quality and taste.
From the deeper waters near the continental shelf we have Golden Tile. These fish are less than 24 hours to our door and it shows. Brilliant yellow markings and glistening eyes highlight the quality of these larger (4-8lb) Tilefish.
Fluke continue to be a good choice and we have mostly Jumbo size fish of sushi quality with the fish hailing from colder New England Waters.
Black Sea Bass catches are strong out of Rhode Island and the fish are in rigor and with candy red gills. Most fish are Jumbo sized (2-4lbs).
Mackerel are gorgeous today and you have your choice of Boston (0.75# avg) or Spanish (1-3#). Either fish are full of healthy omega 3's and are guaranteed delicious.
Also available are Sturgeon bullets (headed and gutted, collar and tail removed), these fancy fish are worth a try. No other seafood has the rich steak like quality of good sturgeon.
The oyster of the day is the fabulous Fanny Bay; tray grown to produce a finely fluted edge these oysters are raised in the protected Baynes Sound that separates Vancouver Island from the mainland British Columbia. Fanny Bays are consistent and predictable in taste having the signature cucumber finish and mild brine people have come to expect from Pacific oysters.
Also available Norwegian Halibut, Hiramasa, and Farmed King Salmon.
