Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
Winds are blowing gale force north of us, but southern fisheries are experiencing bountiful catches and fine weather. As a result wild striped bass are at a seasonally low price and the fish are gorgeous and big to boot. Golden tile is from a Jersey boat that ventured a little further south and had a nice haul of these Continental Shelf dwellers. Black sea bass are also coming in daily and these are sharp and fresh with a look of surprise still in the eyes.
Wednesday is of course Saint Patrick's Day, so we wanted to showcase two fish from Ireland. We have a beautiful Irish organic (E.U. certified) Salmon; from the Mannin Bay Salmon Company of Ireland. Please specify when you order organic salmon. Also available is the pretty Irish Steelhead trout from the Emerald Isle (average weight 2#), this tasty cousin of the rainbow trout has a deep ruby colored flesh and a sublime taste, a great alternative to char.
We even have an oyster that seems to fit the bill for tomorrows festivities. While not from Ireland the Canada Cup oyster does possess a nice green colored shell. Grown in green algae rich waters the shell of the oyster is a deep green when wet, consistent in size and shape, deep cupped, briny and with firm clean meat.
Call us if you may be featuring fish and chips - we have a wide range of options to fit your needs and budget.
Dover sole came in last night and since prices are down we decided to bring in a few extra of these iconic flatfish. Dover sole will be available in sizes ranging from 16 to 28 ounces, quantities are limited so order early.
Also available today: Pompano, Escolar, Boston Mackerel, Uni Trays, and Pemaquid Mussels.
NOTE: Because of the St. Patrick's day parade schedule, and street closures please be prepared for delays in delivery times and limited second delivery runs. Thank you for understanding.
