Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
 
Wednesday here at Wild Edibles has us searching hard for quality fish. Most if not all of the "day boats" are tied up and not fishing. This is an annual occurrence because of the limited allotment allowed for "days at sea". In simple terms they must wait  about 30 days to return to fishing. With anticipated new regulations that will establish individual quotas expected we hope that the day boats will be allowed to continue on with this more sustainable catch method vs. the drag boats. We hope to have Icelandic fish in this weekend and will keep you posted.
 
Specials we are extremely proud of include:
  • Live Sea Scallops in the Shell
  • plump little whitebait
  • Delaware striped bass (there getting bigger, 6-15lbs)
  • Arctic Char, sustainable closed system raised
At this time we are waiting on Columbia Wild King Salmon to arrive at the airport, give us a call if you have any interest.

Have a great day,
