Featured Specialty Seafood:
Genuine Redfish/ Red Drum
Product Of: Mauritius Island
Catch Method: Farmed
Sustainability: Not Rated
Native to the Atlantic 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, so today most available redfish are 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 and firm enough to grill, and is well suited for raw dishes. Its mild flavor makes it a perfect option for strong flavors and bold spices.
Resurrection Bay Sockeye Salmon
Product of: Resurrection Bay, USA
Catch Method: Gill Net
Also known as Red Salmon, Sockeye are harvested from a variety of areas, with this run coming from Resurrection Bay. Sockeye has a bright red flesh with full flavor and excellent fat content. Fillets are extremely rich and moist in flavor, and when cooked, the meat remains red in color and firm in texture. Sockeye can be prepared in a variety of ways, including grilling, roasting, baking, sauteing, broiling, poaching or smoking and holds flavor extremely well. We suggest using a light marinade through the summer months, followed by throwing it on the grill!

-Walleye fishing has come to a halt, and it will continue to be a tough week(s) on any fresh availability. Fishermen are not going out due to the high temps, however we are in daily communication with our suppliers and will keep you updated when things change.
-Wild Salmon season is quickly improving from weeks past. Fishing has opened up from all areas including Yakutat, Bristol Bay and Prince William Sound, which has led to increased catch and a price decrease.
-Halibut landings have increased in the Atlantic, and this remains to be a great menu options. Landings in the Pacific are still low as fishermen are out fishing for wild salmon.
-Tuna prices have been fluctuating due to holiday demands, however things are starting to level out now that the holiday has passed.
-Black Bass catch is still great, and prices are reasonable.
-Scallop production for the year will be nowhere near last years numbers. The quota has been reduced by 10 million pounds, and majority of the product that we have been seeing are smaller in size. Right now we are seeing higher prices on the larger sizes, and may start to see shortages in the fall.
-It is now summer in Iceland which means supply will be more limited until the new season opens September 1st.
