Notes from our buyer
Canadian salmon remains high due to low supply low supply. Two of the major processor are on shut down for a few weeks. Also we have been bringing in some beautiful farmed raised Sanford Kings although this product has been very limited as well.
Several varieties of east coast oysters are available, including Chesapeake Bay, Rocky Nook and James River.
Redfish supply has picked up and we are able to get our hands on all sizes. This product is grown right here in Texas, which give you the freshest fish possible.
Currently we are pulling in some great Atlantic Halibut 40-60 lbs fish. We will be starting our re-fresh program during the off season. Prices still remain high!
Chilean salmon prices are back on the rise. We are also getting in large whole salmon from the North Sea, primarily from Faroe Islands.
We are seeing a good supply of sacks and gallons with most of our oyster coming out of Texas. We are seeing a good supply selects gallons, perfect for your oyster stuffing. Prices are taking a big jump this week and we expect to see shortages through the end of the year.
American red snapper supply has tightened due to the weather in the gulf this week. We are buying it directly off the boats with a team that is hand grading it for us. We can get you the size that you want, just ask!
Scallop prices remain high. We expect to see this price continue to climb until after the first of the year. There is a good supply of the larger scallops but it is tight on the smaller stuff. Hope to see some of this product early next week.
The market seems to be better this week with prices falling a little bit. We currently have both Big Eye and Yellow Tail in house. So if you looking for a higher oil content Big Eye is the way to go.
Mahi supply is great, once again this week, prices reaming steady. The fish is very fresh and is a great menu option. It’s simply that time of the year and everybody has Mahi
Grouper prices are down a little; let’s hope this trend continues. There seems to be a good supply of fish this week. Let us know if you would like us to cut it for you or send it whole.
Our farmed striped bass is from right here in Texas, this allows us to give our customers the longest possible shelf life possible. Prices have soften a little and we feel that they should remain stable through the end of the year.
Many of you may be considering black drum as an alternative to redfish. As the temperature states to fall we are seeing a better supply of drum. This time of the year we seem to see more smaller fish 1-4 lbs.
The domestic crabmeat is tough right now, once again. Venezuela crab is off conservation and we expect to see a fall in the prices in the coming weeks due to a good supply in the near future. We currently have both products in house.
Our catfish is farmed right here in Texas. Prices are on the steady rise as the supply is very tight. It appears to be tight for the remainder of the year, especially on the larger fillets.
Escolar, Opah, and Barracuda
Just flew in some great Barramundi fillets this week. Call while supplies last! If there is something that you looking for from that regions let us know.
We have a variety of seabass options. We continue to carry H&G (20-30 kg) as well as a smaller 10-20kg if that is more of what you’re looking for. The Seabass is on the rise and will continue to increase as the Halibut season draws to an end. There seems to be a little delay in getting Seabass cleared into the US due to the government being shut down.
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. Lobster prices are on the rise: lobster are moving into deeper water and not as active as before.
Ruby trout supply is much better. The only shortage is on the larger golden trout fillet from Idaho. The water supply is back up now, and the product will be more plentiful in the near future.
