Halibut is a member of the Flounder family, and is one of the largest and fastest swimming flatfish species. It is extremely versatile with a thick and meaty flesh that holds together for a variety of cooking methods and can withstand most sauces. Fillets are very mild, sweet in flavor and lean. Halibut can be baked, broiled, grilled, poached, sautéed or steamed, and is excellent for kabobs.

•Sword and Tuna are starting to show up, finally, from the Atlantic coast.
•Atlantic Halibut pricing is good! As more fish start to show up on the docks, pricing is expected to lower even more. Unfortunately, the Pacific fishery is dealing with weather issues, as well as strong demand which is causing high prices.
•Wild Striped Bass inventory will be limited due to seasonal closures, and fishermen moving to other open fisheries. We should see an increase in supply come mid-April.
•The Atlantic and Gulf (Mexico) Grouper fishery will reopen on Thursday April 1st which means that we should start to see supply available later next week. With the expected demand being high, we will most likely not see significant product for another 2 weeks.
•Black Bass is steady and the pricing is decent.
•The availability in Iceland is spotty due to holiday.
•Crawfish season just open but please remember this is a preorder item.
•Maryland crab season opens in a few days, and Canadas snow crab season opens soon as well. It is the start or soft shell crab season and the first of the year will start out of Georgia and South Carolina at record high prices.
•The lobster supply is expected to increase which means pricing should start to fall.
