Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
Welcome back to Monday. To start the week off right we will have wild Alaskan king salmon direct from Anchorage tonight. From the troll fishery these will be gorgeous fish. Sockeyes and Coho will also be available in limited quantities and we will also have Pacific Halibut.
Troubles in Greece are once again playing havoc with some of our shipments we only received about one third of our Monday order for these two Mediterranean fish, availability will be tight Tuesday. Our contacts in Greece say that by mid week things will be better.
Locally wild striped bass are looking like prices may be starting to come down, and there is plenty of good fluke available. Striped bass is a real menu favorite, and why not with big fillets, versatile solid yet tender meat, and a great name will drive sales at your restaurant.
Naskatucket oysters are being harvested now and can be on your raw bar Tuesday. Our friend Rod Taylor grows some of the nicest oysters on the East coast. Rich briny and loaded with the flavors that can only be found in the areas natural inlets, Naskatucket oysters are a great choice.
