Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good Monday Morning Chefs and Buyers,
January has come and gone and with just a week to go with restaurant week many of you are probably thinking ahead to Valentines Day. If you will have any special needs we can help, give us a call.  Today we are taking Dover sole pre orders for Thursday, prices are stable.
Heads up on the following items as prices are going up on Swordfish, black sea bass, and cod. Wild striped bass and monk are good buys with prices dropping slightly.
Florida gulf fisheries have received a larger quota for red snapper and the fish are firm fresh candy gilled and a good value. We will be seeing how prices may stabilize, but with closures on the Atlantic Coast we will have to wait and see. We also have some really engaging Amberjacks, these are the 4lb average sized Amberline jacks that cut great and are the southern equivalent to Hamachi.
Fluke catches are very strong, and boats are unloading fish from Connecticut to the Carolinas. Nice Fish / Nice Price.
Golden Tile are big and bright (8-14lbs) from Barnegat Light, NJ. Char are new and nice, but on the smaller side of 2-3lbs.
We also have a few big corvinas, razor clams, and fresh octopus.
"Away in a meadow all covered with snow
The little old groundhog looks for his shadow
The clouds in the sky determine our fate
If winter will leave us all early or late."
