Tilefish is an extra lean white meat fish with a firm, mild flavor. Adults weigh an average of 10-25 pounds, and the fish we just got are weighing in between 8 and 12 pounds. They are widespread in tropical and temperate waters. The golden tilefish is the most colorful fish with a blue-green back that fades to a pearly white belly. It is touched with red and blue iridescence, highlighted by irregular yellow-gold spots, and ocean-blue under the eyes. Combined with these colorful markings is the adipose flag or crest on the head. The blueline tilefish is similar in taste to the golden tilefish, but it is not as colorful and lacks the adipose flag.

Notes from our buyer
Crawfish season is in full swing. If you are planning to get some of our delicious Louisiana farm- raised crawfish for Mardi Gras, you should let your sales rep know. We recommend crawfish for Mardi Gras be pre-ordered. Throw me some crawfish, MISTER!

Rainbow ‘Green’, Golden, and Ruby trout
Green trout is what the guys on the farm call the regular rainbow trout. Since they have ruby and golden as well, it is just a term they use to distinguish between the three. Our ‘green’ trout is what every sales person calls rainbow trout. Red and golden continue to be very tight. The end is not in sight yet.
