–Arctic Char is a cold-water fish. It is closely related to both salmon and lake trout with many of the same characteristics of both. Arctic Char vary in color depending on the time of year and the environment in which it lives.The flesh can range from bright red to pale pink. Commercial Arctic char typically weigh between 2 and 10 lb. The flesh is fine flaked and medium firm. Buyers consider Artic char a good substitute for farm-raised salmon because it has a more delicate texture and clean, mild flavor.

urder Point Oysters are out of Porterville Bay in Alabama near what was once called Myrtle Point. Legend has it that a dispute over an oyster lease in the area lead to a fatal fight. In 1927, locals renamed the area Murder Point and the rest is history. Murder Point oysters are the product of an off-bottom, intensive aquaculture. Australian Longline cages are used to grow and nurture Murder Point oysters throughout the growing season. This off-bottom method allows the oysters to move up and down in the water column, allowing them to be flavored by different pressures, temperatures, and food sources.

Rainbow Trout is continuing to experience a slowdown in production at the farms. Availability is limited, as we are being shorted by the farms. Some of this is due to summer months, along with decrease in egg production. The Ruby Trout farms have also started to see a slowdown due to a decrease in egg production. Frozen trout is another alternative. Get with your sales rep for pricing and availability.
