Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
 
American red snapper today are fantastic, sized 2-4lbs with bright crimson gills, clear eyes and firm flesh they will go quick. American reds are caught primarily in the Gulf of Mexico, and these are no exception. The southern Atlantic states have placed a limited ban on snappers, and with the ongoing spill in the gulf true American reds may be hard to come by soon.
 
From the Yucatan peninsula we have red grouper and mahi-mahi. Groupers are running 5-10 lbs and are less than a day out of the water. Mahi supplies have tightened up recently and we only have a couple hundred pounds available.
 
Black sea bass from our friend in Massachusetts with a special permit will be in tonight. These fish are mostly sized from 2-4lbs today with a few 1-2 available as well.
 
Sturgeon, Jumbo soft shell crabs, wild king salmon, dayboat cod , and wild striped bass will be available to ship to you Tuesday.
 
Wellfleet oysters and clams are coming tonight. Availably is pretty tight since the supplier is having difficulty meeting volume needs.

Have a great day,
