Farm Raised Redfish
Redfish, or red drum as it is often called, is a torpedo-shaped fish that is more copper than red with copper tipped fins and large copper scales along a broad back. Its most distinctive feature is one or more large black spots on the tail. Redfish catch remains prohibited or tightly restricted. Fortunately for fish lovers everywhere, redfish can be found in aquaculture farms. The benefits to this are that no hormones are added, no antibiotics are used, and no mercury is found in the fish. Redfish have a mild, sweet flavor with a red bloodline, nice firm flesh, and large, moist flakes.
Notes from our buyer
American Red Snapper
We will be receiving a nice shot of American red snapper this week. Some are 4-10 and others are 10 up. Very beautiful fish!!!
Copper River Salmon
Copper River salmon is still coming in. Coho salmon will be available soon.

We will be receiving some beautiful red 10-20 grouper this week. This is great for bar food and center of the plate applications.
Summer temps are here and causing the yields on the oysters to decrease. That means the meat in the shell will be smaller and the gallon oysters will be as well. This should continue until the temp begins to drop.
