Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day everyone,
 
Just a quick note to Loch Duart users; the fish are now from the new generation and are smaller in size with a much subtler flesh, just in time to pair with delicate spring vegetables and lighter sauces. Most of these salmons will be about 8lbs for the next few months while they mature. We also will have Irish organic salmon that are larger in size and with higher fat content. Speaking of high fat content, it is worth taking a look at these California sturgeon we have. Each sturgeon is sustainable, raised in a closed system on a natural diet. Sent to us head, collar and tail off bullets so the yield is incredible, and they eat like steak. 
 
From our friends to the south we have in large 8-12lb golden tile, just in from the boats of Barnegat Light, NJ. We have a school of Pompano sized 1-3lbs, the Florida watermen roast them on planks and enjoy them with cold beers, but since the catches are up they are sending them to New York as well, just the fish not the beer. Jumbo black sea bass are in rigor and have candy gills today and the price is down.
 
Also in today: Portuguese sardines, Australian Hiramasa, Ocean caught wild striped bass from the Virginia boys, Live sea scallops in the shell, and a few king macks.
 
Oh, and a special shout out to our friends in the Bronx today, you know who you are, Thanks!
