Striped bass have silver-white skin with distinctive black horizontal stripes. They are mild, delicate, and slightly sweet in flavor. The flesh is bright white, flaky, and moderately firm. Frugé’s striped bass matures in a natural pond environment which is monitored around the clock all year long. These fish have no antibiotics, no hormones, and no pollutants. Harvested fish are chilled in an ice slurry, graded, boxed, and immediately transported from pond directly to Frugé Seafood, then trimmed to your specs and delivered to you. It doesn’t get any fresher than that!.
Notes from our buyer
Tuna is still tight. Prices are steady. Maybe the full moon will help.
We will have some beautiful rockfish fillets this week. The price is nice and the fish is beautiful.
Prices are up a little bit. Ecuador and Panama are catching, and Costa Rica should be coming on soon. Their season usually begins this month.
Stone crab claws are looking beautiful. Get them while the season lasts.
Oysters are looking great and are abundant. It’s time to run some happy hour specials.
We offer Bay of Fundy, North Sea, and Chilean salmon fillets. All are beautiful, so take your pick.
We have some nice Lucky Lime, Pickle Point, Raspberry Point, and Plymouth Rock oysters, all from the east coast. We also have our East Coast oyster list; get with your sales rep if you’d like to get that list via email.
Swordfish has tightened up quite a bit. Like the tuna, I hope the full moon helps.
Mexico has been very slow as of late. There is very little grouper available.
We will be receiving North Sea whole salmon – Norwegian, Scottish, and Faroe Island – for the weekend.
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.
Fresh halibut is pretty much done for the season. We are looking into a refreshed program. Please get with your sales rep if you are interested.
Production is back to normal, and I hope it lasts.
We will have some nice drum for the week. This fish is very affordable and great in any application.
Lane Snappers have tightened up. We should have some next week.
Prices are holding steady for now. Quality is great.
Prices will be going up a bit due to lower catches. Pricing should be this way through the new year.

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.
