Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
 
The majority of our special fish today has arrived from points south. From Florida we have received beautiful American red snappers, and big Amberjack. From Mexico fishermen are bringing in fancy 5-10lb red grouper, these are the same fish as you are used to, caught in the lower Gulf of Mexico. Mahi and Corvina are both from Panama, and both have bright skin glistening with metallic colors. The flesh is firm and the collars look just cut.
 
More West Coast oysters and wild king salmon will be arriving in the overnight, we are waiting today for additional openings in the Pacific Northwest and hope to see a few sockeye in addition to the fancy wild king salmons we have been getting. Pacific halibut is looking strong, and we have live dungeness crab.
 
Nova Scotia short trip halibut boats are catching smaller 10-20lb halibuts and they are fresher than fresh, with cherry red cavities and firm flesh as they have arrived to us in rigor.
 
From one of our favorite farms we have big prehistoric Siberian Sturgeon. Rich and eating like steak sturgeon is fatty and a real treat of a fish, that it is raised in a sustainable way makes it all the sweeter.
 
Also available: red fish, blackfish, black sea bass, hiramasa, salmon fillet from Canada, and barramundi.
