Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
Wreckfish arrives tonight. These big deep water fish are part of a very limited and well regulated individual fish quota system in North Carolina. A small group of fishermen catch these fish using hook and line. There is virtually no by catch and no damages to the surrounding environment. Wreckfish are very similar to grouper when it comes to the meat quality, and since they are sustainable it should be an easy choice.
A little closer to home we have Porgies from right here in Long Island, landings were really good and we have a wide range of sizes. Porgies remain a little appreciated species, but the fine white flesh works well in a variety of cuisines. Go local; buy scup. Other Local specials are fluke, silver dory fillet, and jumbo black sea bass. Wild striped bass are coming in tonight from Massachusetts.
Also available today: wild sockeye and king salmon, sweet Mexican bay scallops, pompano, marlin loin, arctic char, and whiting.
