Rockfish known as an American Treasure, are most commonly found near-shore on the west coast. Commonly known as Pacific rockfish, Pacific cod or Pacific snapper. While there are taste differences in several varieties, all rockfish are firm, lean and mild-flavored. There are more than 70 different varieties of this bass-like fish. The main differences between the varieties are in its texture. #FrugeSeafood

Notes from our buyer
Troll Caught Kings are available but very pricey. Also we have been bringing in some beautiful Ora Kings, please let your Frugé Seafood sales representative know if you’re interested.
We are still bringing in a good supply of east coast oysters. This week we have some great choices which include, Dan Bigs, Naked Cowboys and James River. Blue Points are also in stock as well.
Quantities remain to be limited, but we have been able to fill all of our customer’s needs. We are expecting to see Jumbo’s in early November. Please get with your sales team and place your orders.
Less than 18 days remaining in the Halibut Season. We are starting to see a limited supply of fresh fish directly from Alaska.
Cod, Sole, and Haddock
Atlantic cod and Lemon Sole are a great option for your menu if you need a great fish at a reasonable price. Get with our sales team to order your spec.
Chilean salmon prices have flatten out. We are also getting in large whole salmon from the North Sea (country of origin can be Scotland, Faroe Islands, or Norway).
The Gulf is open and the labor force is back to work. We are seeing a good supply of sacks and the gallons are picking up. We expect to see select gallons in early November.
American red snapper supplies have really picked up driving the price down nicely. Just another one of the many products directly from the Gulf in Southern Louisiana. We also have beautiful lanes and yellowtail snapper as a great alternative.
Scallop prices have taken a big jump in the last week. Products are still available ranging from U/10 all the way down to pieces
The market remains very tight on the Yellow Fin but we have been able to keep a good selection of both #1 and #2+. Watch for the price to continue to rise.
Mahi is still available. We have just received some great looking fish.
Grouper prices remain to hold tight. There seems to be a good supply of fish this week.
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. The product is available, but can be limited in the summer, so make sure we know your needs.
The domestic crabmeat has started to pick up with the cooler weather. Venezuela crab is off conservation and we expect to see a fall in the prices in the coming weeks.
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.
Escolar, Opah, and Barracuda
Opah landed this week from Hawaii! 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.
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 seems to remain tight. The low water supply this summer has created a shortage on the larger red meat fish from Idaho. The water supply is back up now, and the product will be more plentiful in the near future.
