Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
The air is cool the moon is full and the fishing is good. Monday brings new shipments to our warehouse from all points of the compass. With this kind of variety, surely something will get your culinary juices flowing.
Late last week a large swath of the Gulf of Mexico was reopened to fishing, and Tropical Storm Bonnie came into the area with very little intensity. Our sourced boats arrived into port this weekend with a nice mixed bag of fish.
  • Grouper, black and red are both available (both are in the 5-10 lb range)
  • American Red Snappers (mostly 2-4 lbs, call for other sizes)
  • Florida Pink Snapper (similar to Tai or NZ Pinks, mostly 1-2 lbs)
  • Cobia, wild and line caught
For something different and tasty we have farmed redfish (red drum) from a very good operation in Texas. Copper Shoals Redfish are free from hormones, antibiotics and fed a natural diet. Each fish is a near perfect 2 lbs each with rich firm juicy flesh, they would be great salt baked and are sturdy enough to take on bold flavors and the grill.
From the Carolinas we have in sustainable and tasty Wreckfish, a small shot of wahoo, and a small blacktip shark.
Dover Sole prices continue to skyrocket, we still have a few brave takers on the fresh. We do offer a high quality frozen Dover sole as well.
Fresh sardines from Portugal arrive tonight.
Also available: fancy dayboat Massachusetts cod, monk, striped bass, and skate.
"The true triumph of reason is that it enables us to get along with those who do not possess it."


Have a great day,
