We are currently seeing some shortages due to changing seasons and there will be a few more as annual quotas are filled and we get into more winter fisheries. Please keep in contact with your sales rep to go over any menu changes.
Here is what else you need to know:
The Bass situation has improved but we are still fairly limited on most types. Mexican Grouper (Baquetta) is in good shape but Mexican White Bass is extremely limited.
Mexican Halibut remains limited, particularly on smaller fish.
We have received a beautiful shipment of local Thresher Shark.
Morro Bay Groundfish (Rockfish & Sole) are good for this weekend but boats will be switching to Crab fishing in the very near future.
If you need local options for your menu we are currently looking great on Spot Prawns, Swordfish, Opah and Uni Roe.
Mount Lassen Steelhead is a flavorful alternative to Wild Salmon and it has a great story to engage your customers.
Mexican Yellowtail is still a great value and can fill a variety of menu needs.
Wild Gill Net King Salmon is still being caught in Washington so we’ve got another shipment due in for the weekend. This might be the last of it, though.
Oregon Petrale Sole is a mild-flavored favorite that holds up to many prep methods.
Mississippi Catfish showed up too late for today’s sales but is fine for the weekend.
SOUTH PACIFIC/CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA/ASIA
Corvina out of Ecuador is tight for tomorrow but we are (knock on wood) expecting a rather large shipment to cover weekend orders.
Ora King Salmon is expected in tonight but may be too late for tomorrow’s deliveries.
Swordfish prices have stayed down for this week and product is plentiful.
Tilapia may not be the sexiest name on the menu but it is a crowd pleaser in a variety of presentations and is an especially good value this week.
Wild Norwegian Halibut is one of the most delicate, flaky fish in the world. Many European chefs prize this fish over Turbot and we have it in stock now.
Large (3/5 count) Florida Stone Crab Claws are in house now with Medium Claws (6/8 count) due in this weekend.
Iceland Cod Loins should make it in for Friday’s sales.
There was a recall on some Canadian oysters announced this week due to Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) but we are not carrying any types from the affected stocks.
Fanny Bay Oysters continue to be somewhat limited but will be here for the weekend.
