Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
A lot of fine new arrivals into our warehouse today. And a few prices coming down on Sword and Striped Bass. Sword are being caught in abundance in Canada and prices are dropping on these true dayboat harpoon and line caught fish. Wild striped bass season has opened in Massachusetts and prices are edging downward. If enough product comes in NY spec (sized 34-36 inches) then we may see some bargain basement prices.
From Carolina we have big wild red drum "redfish", this fish is super firm and great grilled or blackened. New tilefish are available either grey or gold, both top quality.
From Panama we have King Clip. Sold headed and gutted this eel like fish has meat that is comparable to grouper or cod at a great price for restaurant week.
The Siberian sturgeon came in nice and large with most over 15 lbs and a few over 20 lbs. Prehistoric in appearance, firm and fresh, and full of richly flavored meat.
A few Nunavut wild arctic char are up for grabs. 
We will have Wild King, Coho, and Sockeyes available for delivery Thursday.
Sardines and fresh Octopus will arrive late tonight from Portugal.
Also available: Razor clams, shucked steamer clams "Ipswich", Spanish Mackerel, Uni trays, black sea bass, and Sushi Fluke.
