Prized for its superior flavor, Sturgeon is a long-lived prehistoric favorite that quickly became over fished and nearly impossible to obtain (and still is to this day.) Now farmed to perfection, the aquaculture industry has created an excellent alternative and lessened the impact on the threatened wild species. Our sturgeon is raised in the artisinal waters of northern California and rated as Best Choice from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program. Sturgeon has a delicate, mild flavor and a lean flesh that is firm and meaty. Grilling, roasting, sauteing, smoking or poaching are all great options for preparations, and marinades work extremely well for this fish!

One of the most beautiful fish in the ocean, Mahi Mahi is known for its electric greenish blue and yellow colors. Although most associate Mahi with Hawaii, Mahi is found in the tropical and sub tropical waters around the world and was once a by-catch to the tuna and sword fisheries. Mahi has now grown into a directed long line fishery. Mahi is sweet with a mildly pronounced flavor that is similar to swordfish. The meat is lean, firm in texture and has large, moist flakes. Mahi remains moist when cooked and holds up well to most preparations. Cooking methods include baking, broiling, frying, grilling or sautéing.

-The Black Bass Massachusetts season has closed with the quota met. Rhode Island fishing is still open, and prices remain reasonable.
-Boats are landing with Flounder, however the windy weather has caused prices to increase just slightly. Still a great value!
-Tuna prices have been steady in the market. Sword prices have lowered a little, as demand has slightly decreased.
-Monkfish prices have been higher due to the high winds, however we expect it to level off at the end of the week.
-The Icelandic fishermen have been fighting some weather which means that there has been limited landings on cod and ocean perch, resulting in higher than norm prices for this time of the year.

-We have been seeing some beautiful Golden Tilefish in house, caught in the US!
