Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
The entire North Atlantic fishing fleet has come in and are tying up in safe harbor in anticipation of the coming storm. Gale force winds in excess of 40 miles an hour are forecast with very high seas of 10-20ft currently and increasing today. We will have plenty of groundfish for the weekend , but prices and availability could suffer come Monday.
We have for delivery Friday in addition to just landed dayboat groundfish like cod, haddock, and monk: plenty of fish from southerly areas not weather affected.
Our Florida fish arrived this am: Triggers as fine as can be - sweet fleshed and firm (2-4lbs each), Red Grouper still in rigor (5-10lbs), American Red Snappers (mostly 2-4lbs), and fresh octo and stone crab from traps near Tampa Bay.
Some short trip pelagic line caught Tunas and Swords are in house from a Jersey Boat, the quality of these fish are superb, we even have a very limited amount of Escolar taken as a by-catch.
Razors from Rhode Island, Mahi from Panama, rich and meaty Sturgeon, Striped bass from the Chesapeake Area (MD & VA), and Nova Scotia Halibut round off our special offerings.
