Featured Specialty Seafood:
OPEN BLUE COBIA
Product of: Panama
Catch Method: Aquaculture Raised
Bearing a striking resemblance to a shark, our Cobia are raised in the clean, deep waters far offshore in Panama. Situated in a protected no-take zone of 2,500 acres of water, this pristine natural environment is home only to Open Blue and indigenous marine species. At Open Blue, sustainability is woven into every aspect of operation from protected waters to improving community impact. Chefs love this versatile fish for its firm flesh, mild flavor, and versatility in the kitchen. Cobia is delicious raw and perfect for sushi, sashimi or ceviche, and can also be grilled, poached, steamed, fried or smoked. Because of its high oil content, the flesh always stays succulent and moist, no matter the preparation method.

- Chilean salmon supply is okay for the week with exception of 2-3 which we wont have.
- Supply is still limited on many items. Suppliers have said it will get better but it hasn’t. Tuna and sword prices are still high and it has been a LONG time since prices remained so high for an extended period of time with such limited availability.
- Weather has been keeping the boats in, mainly in the Gulf which is limiting availability and driving up the prices. There is little Snapper arriving- We have no American Red or Caribbean Red arriving, and only have Pacific Lanes in house.
- Wild Striped Bass has been steady for now, however through the month of May, availability may be limited. There will be one season closing, but the Maryland and Virginia ocean fishery will open and get going in April.
- Walleye prices came down again with some aggressive prices available, mainly on Jumbos.
- Monk prices are dropping as availability is increasing.
- Iceland product has been great! Cod is beautiful right now, but expect supply to get tight with Easter ahead.
- Don’t forget about smoked fish for Easter!
