Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
Thursday marks the beginning of July and we have some great offerings before the Independence day weekend. We finally have more wild striped bass from Maryland arriving. These fish are smaller in size, with most sized 5-8 lbs. We have a few Rhode Island fish that are large, but limited in quantity. We will be closed on Monday, July 5th so plan your orders.
Coming from Florida:
  • American red snappers (2-4lbs)
  • Amberline Jack (2-4lbs)
Coming from Massachusetts:
  • Porgies, Jumbo and Large
  • Black sea bass (1lb special permit fish)
  • Tautog / black fish (3-5lbs)
  • Jumbo monk tails
  • Dayboat "loligo" squid
From Rhode Island:
  • Razor clams
  • Steamers
  • 'Singing' sea scallops in the shell
From the Pacific:
  • Wild King Salmon, Alaska and Washington State
  • Wild Sockeye Salmon, AK
  • Live Dungeness Crab, BC
  • Black Cod / Sablefish, BC
Our featured oyster today is the Wellfleet petite cocktail. These little Massachusetts gems are a rare treat. Most of the harvest is of larger animals, but a new bed has opened and we have the smaller petite oyster for you today. Coming in around 2 inches they are comparable in size to a Beau Soleil. Hard shells, sweet succulent meats, briny finish and full cups are signatures of the Wellfleet Petite. Available on a first come first served basis while supplies last.
Also available: Fijian Opah, Sustainable Sturgeon, Golden Corvina, Golden Tile, 'snapper' Bluefish, Dayboat Cod, Grouper, Hand picked fresh blue crab meat, and a full line of frozen including unique items like soft shelled crayfish.
