Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
The weather would appear to have held and most of the Northern fishing fleet stayed at sea, so catches should be constant on ground fish. Dayboat cod and haddock have been solid choices with haddock looking like a steal.
So far the Greek strike has had little effect on Branzini and Dorade, but prices may fluctuate as Greece continues to struggle with the economy.
Chilean turbot will be sold out quick, so if you need any give us a call.
Australian Hiramasa will be in fresh and fancy tonight, a sustainable solution to your crudo / hamachi dishes.
Bluefish and Spanish mackerel are both rich and full flavored and at the peak of freshness.
Sustainable Barramundi will be in from Australis Aquaculture in Mass. This fish was recently featured on Dr. Oz for its health qualities, so cash in on the buzz. Barramundi will be 1-1.25lbs each. Really are great tasting little fish!
Also available today: Irish organic trout (steelhead), fresh shrimp from Florida, Tile, Razor Clams, Sturgeon, Laughing Bird Shrimp (sustainable, sweet and fresh), and our Fabulous Wild Edibles Smoked Salmon.
On this day in history During the bloody Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Division take the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island's highest peak and most strategic position, and raise the U.S. flag. We respectfully remember and honor all that serve today or have served this country, so that we may live free.
"Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue."
~Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, USN, Pacific Fleet communiqué, 16 March 1945
