Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
We have two really interesting local items today. The first is what is called 'tinker' mackerel, small finger sized Boston mackerel where caught right here off of Long Island, very nice, very limited, and very fun. Keeping with the petite theme we have some micro-razor clams. Averaging 3 to 4 inches each these lively razors are great raw or as a wonderful visual stopper in any number of your creations.
We just unloaded a New Jersey short trip Tuna boat and we are very pleased with the quality of the fish. Plenty of number 1 yellowfin and fatty bigeye, line caught albacore, and one 250# sword were landed within the past 24 hours and now they can be on your table too.
Massachusetts continues to see good landings despite some rough weather yesterday. Coming from those brave fishermen that went out yesterday we will have wild striped bass, fancy fluke, porgies, steaked cod, and skate.
Also available: trigger fish from North Carolina, king clip from Costa Rica, Siberian Sturgeon, and fresh Jumbo Lump Crab meat from Florida.
We will have our first shipment of Mediterranean Mussels in quite a long time. These full meat bivalves are grown in the Totten Inlet in Washington State. These are a very rich and meaty mussel for those looking for something like a "Bouchot". Call for availability, we hope to bring in more if we the demand is good.

Have a great day,
