Venezuela: Season Opens for processing
October 15. Give it 3-4 days after
Maryland: Expected to be picking until mid to late November. Pasteurized Inventory growing but very expensive
Gulf: Some in. More expected this week
Columbia/Mexico: Bits and Pieces
Indo Market: All indications are market will be rough until early next spring. Expect no price decreases due to lower production and increased demand
From the West Coast:
Yellowtail Jack: coming out of the Northern Baja in Mexico.
Yellowtail Jack has not been assessed and rated by any seafood watch program, but the methods used to catch Yellowtail are gentle on the environment and light on the fish populations, especially in the case of hand line and hook & line caught fish.
Blue Marlin: In from Hawaii, we have been having great success with this fish for quite a while now, the guys ant Garden & Valley are really treating us right.
Monchong: I had 100# come in this morning and already half of it is gone, jump on it now as I don't know when I'll be able to replace it!
We have about 100# of fresh Barramundi fillets from Bali. These are 16-24 ounce sides, skin off and pinbone removed.
From the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico I have the following:
American Red Snapper, I received a few hundred LBs of large American Red Snapper from New Orleans this morning, most are in the 6-10# range and look fantastic, it's good to have the local boats back out after all that happened this past season.
Red Grouper: Wild Seafood was able to get me 100# of domestic red grouper from Madiera Beach, FL. His boats are back in action and we will have another good shot arriving
Tautog: In from Massachusets, tautog, AKA Blackfish, are looking great
Trigger: In from North Carolina, I hope to add a few more of these later in the week, so grab 'em quickly as only 80# arrived.
Other fish in limited quantities:
Opah (maybe 20# of fillet available)
Walleye Pike, 30# of 2-3# whole fish out of Lake Eerie
Sheepshead, 25-30# of fillets available.
