Featured Specialty Seafood:
Product Of: Mauritius Island
Catch Method: Farmed
Sustainability: Not Rated
Native to the Atl. Coast, northern South America and the Gulf of Mexico, Red Drum are known as the best tasting drum species which almost led to its downfall. Overfishing in the past led to closures of most US fisheries making most available redfish today, farmed.
In marine pens just offshore of Mauritius (Indian Ocean), the fish grow out in spacious conditions with low stocking densities. Divers inspect the nets daily to maintain net integrity and monitor stock health, while maintaining the highest animal welfare standards and preservation of the environment.
Its white flesh is delicate enough to fry, firm enough to grill & well suited for raw dishes. Its mild flavor makes it a perfect option for strong flavors and bold spices.

- Lake Fish remains tight. We have been seeing very little yellow perch, and minimal walleye in house.
- Tuna has been a little difficult to source due to increased demand, and less boats out on the water which means prices will increase later this week.
- Swordfish remains limited due to the moon cycle, however boats are out now and should be in within a week.
- Flounder on the east coast has been strong, as well as Black Bass landings.
- Wild Striped Bass will be tight, mainly due to the winter weather.
- Grouper remains limited, and snapper availability is expected to pick up shortly.
- Iceland supply remains strong and the quality has been excellent.
- Live Lobster supply remains an issue with weather playing a huge factor. The weather has kept the boats in, and demand continues to increase.
- Stone Crab pricing is firm with limited production.
