We have a great selection of oysters this week. Make sure you are on our East Coast oyster list that we send out every week. We have access to several varieties each week. Large size Pemaquids are a great value for the month of September.
Texas coast oyster reefs are closed due to Hurricane Harvey. The State of Louisiana has opened their oyster reefs. Gulf product will be coming from Louisiana and Mississippi. We offer sacks, standard gallons, and select gallons. We are seeing price increases this week on all gulf oysters. Oyster production has slowed mostly due to labor. Tidal surges and lack of areas able to harvest are also contributing to the rise in price. Deck hands working on boats are now being sought after to work in recovery and restoration projects from Hurricane Harvey.
Murder Points will be unavailable for the next few weeks due to too much rain in the area.
Murder Point Oysters are out of Porterville Bay in Alabama near what was once called Myrtle Point. Legend has it that a dispute over an oyster lease in the area lead to a fatal fight. In 1927, locals renamed the area Murder Point and the rest is history. Murder Point oysters are the product of an off-bottom, intensive aquaculture. Australian Longline cages are used to grow and nurture Murder Point oysters throughout the growing season. This off-bottom method allows the oysters to move up and down in the water column, allowing them to be flavored by different pressures, temperatures, and food sources.
The Redfish and Striped bass farm are back online. Extra Jumbo Redfish (3lb and up) have a good availability right now. Jumbo Redfish (2.5-3 lb.) are harder to get due to the warmer weather. Striped Bass is a great option this time of year as well.
This salmon is naturally raised; Antibiotic Free, Chemical Free, Preservative Free, and Hormone Free. The feed is comprised of all natural and sustainable resources. And unlike other farm raised salmon Wild Isle Salmon is raised in the open ocean of the Shetland Islands, and not in a Loch or Bay like other farms raised salmons.
Prices are up, with decent availability. Hurricane Irma has thrown some kinks with product out of Miami not available in the market. This has caused availability in other parts of the country to tighten up. We expect everything to improve in the coming weeks. We have great 2+ and #1 fish arriving this week.
Rainbow Trout is continuing to experience a slowdown in production at the farms. Availability is limited, as we are being shorted by the farms. Some of this is due to summer months, along with decrease in egg production. The Ruby Trout farms have also started to see a slowdown due to a decrease in egg production. Frozen trout is another alternative. Get with your sales rep for pricing and availability.
Swordfish availability and pricing is holding steady with decent availability. Hurricane Irma has thrown some kinks with product out of Miami not available in the market. This has caused availability in other parts of the country to tighten up. We expect everything to improve in the coming weeks.
