Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
Nova Scotia short trip halibut are in today. These cold water Atlantic halibut are fat and firm with bloody collars and glistening skin. Also in from the same vessel are a few nice big swordfish caught by troll on the return trip.
The Massachusetts day boats are back out and fishing for ground fish. Most are catching smaller market cod, but we were able to bring in large steaked cod and fancy jumbo monkfish tails. The cod is coming from Gloucester and the monk tails (bellys) are pure Martha's Vineyard gems.
Mahi-mahi are flecked gold and green fresh from a late night Panama flight into JFK. We have a limited amount of New Zealand Pink snappers all line caught and between 2 and 5 lbs. New Zealand Pinks are also called Tai snapper and are in the same family of fish as dorade and porgy.
We are getting new Washington Kings daily via Seattle, and we should start to see some other species of wild salmon in the next week since areas like the Copper river open soon. Right now the Kings are coming from the Columbia river.
Other fin fish available include: Florida red drum, golden corvina, steelhead trout, branzino all sizes up to 2lbs, whitebait, and hiramasa.
We have an unbelievable wholesale deal on a Prince Edward Island Oyster. For only $35 per 100ct bag we are offering for a very limited time our Savage Harbour oyster. Grown in the nutrient rich waters of the Prince Edward Isles, these standard sized oysters are firm, full and briny with a bright clean finish. Equally at home on your raw bar or topped and broiled. At 35 cents a piece you cannot go wrong.

Have a great day,
