Found in the waters of Florida and the mid-Atlantic states as well as South America, Central America, and the Gulf of Mexico, grouper belongs to one the largest fish families in the sea, the seabass family. The most popular being red grouper (found in most markets/restaurants), there is also black, yellow edge, scamp, and snowy grouper found in limited quantities. Grouper has a mild but very unique flavor, somewhat of a cross between bass and halibut. Red grouper is not quite as firm and has a milder, sweeter flavor than the black grouper. Grouper meat cooks up very firm with big flakes and holds its moisture better than many other fish. Since red grouper is a leaner fish it may need basting when broiling or baking.

Notes from our buyer
Crawfish are still here! Although the catch has dropped, we are still seeing nice crawfish on a regular basis. We also have domestic tailmeat available. Call today to get your share!
Copper River Salmon
There were not any openings early this week. They are taking samples today and should announce the next opening within the next 96 hours. It does not look good for this weekend.
The halibut looks fantastic – size 20-40 and 40-60 directly from Alaska.
Soft shell crabs
We have some beautiful soft shells, whales and jumbos, for your feature board. Get them while the season lasts.
Global demand coupled with lower production has salmon prices rising, especially in Chile. Several farms have overharvested to avoid the ISA and other issues. This has left these farms with little to no product. Several large frozen programs continue to scoop up a large amount of salmon as well. We are hoping to see more production in the next two months, but we will have to wait and see.
Summer is here and oysters will continue to be tight. Public seasons are closed, forcing our vendors to turn to their private leases. This means that there are fewer areas to fish from and a more limited supply to sort through. We will continue to support our loyal customers, as always, through this challenging time.
We have some beautiful snapper in. Catches are up a bit and prices better.
Looks like U/10 dry scallops are going to be tight for the next two years. The quotes are shrinking, and the product projections are not looking good. Prices have already begun to rise.
Our tuna is great. Prices are very nice right now. Get it while it lasts.
Prices have dropped a bit. Looks like catches are up.
Blue Points continue to be hard to get. Our Rhode Island guys have begun fishing again, but prices are up. Connecticut has moved to some new beds, but the state has limited them to five hours fishing. That means two hours out, fish for one, and two hours back. Prices are up as well.
Grouper is really coming in now. Prices are nice.
Our farmed striped bass is from right here in Texas. It is harvested, transported, prepared, and shipped under controlled temps. This increases the quality and shelf life for you.
This is a fantastic fish for any application and is consistently the freshest fish we have.
Prices are steady now. Product is fantastic.
We are seeing some domestic meat now. Get your pre-orders in, and we will do our best to fill them.
Prices are steady but quality is great!!! Farmed right here in Texas.
Mongchong, Opah, and Barracuda
We have a variety of seabass options. We have H&G sized 20-30 kg as well as fillets cut from that size. Get with your sales rep for details.
We offer a full range of sizes of live lobsters straight from Maine and Canada. Order today, and we will get them to you tomorrow.
We are expecting a price increase on the golden, ruby, whole, and tail on trout in the next 30 days. Transportation costs have risen.
