Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
With the holiday weekend there was not very much fishing being done, and unfortunately some prices reflect that today. A simple matter of supply and demand. Inventories should increase over the next few days and prices will stabilize for the weekend.
We just covered orders of Wild Striped Bass today. Delaware is open and the fish are brilliant but run smaller than the Virginia and Maryland runs we have been seeing, more landings will occur as the week progresses. For something different we are offering Robalo also known as Snook. Firm fleshed and mild this is a great alternative to Corvina or striped bass, and since it is already headed and gutted (6-8lbs) it has a yield of over 60% making it very food cost friendly.
American red snappers in today are stellar, and the fresh shrimp also from Florida are sweet and crisp. King mackerel were too pretty to pass up on so we have a couple hundred pounds of these rich full flavor fish. Domestic fresh octopus is in today averaging 1-3lbs.
Also available is: Australian hiramasa, California sustainable sturgeon, red grouper, and swordfish.
" Time is probably more generous to the angler than to any other individual. The wind, the sun, the open air, the colors and smell, the loneliness of the sea or the solitude of the stream, work some kind of magic."

Enjoy the day,
