Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
We have some wonderful items to get you through this busy week.  Beautiful Swordfish came in today.  One of the fish is over 300 pounds!  Fresh Local Octopus is available.  They are about 2 pounds each and super fresh.
Jumbo Spanish Mackerel came in this morning.  They are averaging 4 to 5 pounds each.  Beautiful 12 pound Gloucester Cod arrived overnight.  These are a can't miss item.  Wild Striped Bass is still available.  New York's season on Striper is closed.  Virginia should be good to go until the middle of January. 
We got a nice shipment of all our Canadian Oysters today.  We stocked up on the Black Crescent Oysters, which we are using as a replacement for the disappointing consistency of the Beau Soleil's.  You will be very pleased with the change.  The Black Crescent Oysters are fantastic.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
Wild Coho Salmon came back our way.  They are about 10 pounds each and are coming in with the head off and already gutted.  The fish are bycatch from British Columbia.  This means we really have no way of knowing when they will be available again.  They should make a terrific special.  Farm Raised Halibut from Norway keeps looking great.  Each fish weighs between 10 and 20 pounds.  Wild Striped Bass seems to be back on the right track for now.  We have a mix from Long Island and Maryland and they weigh 5 to 7 pounds or 10 to 15 pounds.
Nantucket Bay Scallops look super fresh today.  We also have lovely 10/20 Scallops from Cape May, NJ.  We got in some U/12's from Massachusetts, but we aren't sure about availability in the days to come.  Whelks from Long Island and delicious Razor Clams from Maine also look like great choices.
Florida sent us some nice items this morning.  Red Grouper is here and looks great at 3 to 5 pounds each.  Large Stone Crab Claws are also available and are a can't miss.
We have fantastic fish available from Australia.  Barramundi that weigh between 1 and 1.25 pounds look nice today.  Hiramasa came in again.  They weigh about 5 pounds each and are stunningly fresh.
Chilean Turbot looks delicious as always.  They are about 2 to 3 pounds each.  If the Red Grouper from Florida seems to small for you, we are expecting to receive Black Grouper from Panama overnight.  We are always thrilled with the quality of these when we get them.  They usually weigh between 5 and 10 pounds.

The cost of Cod is going up.  We brought in some gorgeous Sow Hake with nice bloody collars as an alternative.  They are in from Massachusetts.  Also from Massachusetts, gorgeous 7 to 9 pound Dayboat Monkfish Tails are here.  Nantucket Bay Scallops are set to come our way tonight as well.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
It's time to start thinking about another busy December weekend.  We brought in some terrific items and have more great stuff coming in tonight.  Live Scallops in the Shell from Long Island are here.  Long Island also sent us some lovely Whelks.  U/10 and 10/20 Scallops should be no problem this weekend.  The 10/20's are from Cape May, NJ and the U/10's are coming in from Massachusetts.  Nantucket Bay Scallops are also available.  Get them while you can.  We are expecting the high winds in New England to really do a number on Nantucket Bay Scallops, Fresh Squid and Wild Striped Bass for the days to come.
Blackfish from Boston looks like a great option today.  They are super fresh and weigh in at 3 to 5 pounds each.  More delicious Razor Clams found their way here from Maine this morning.  We have a great deal on #2 Tuna tomorrow.  Give us a call to find out more.  Local #1 Tuna is coming in overnight and we expect the fish to be beautiful.  They will be a mix of Big Eye and Yellowfin, so please specify which you would prefer.
Our weekly shipment of Portuguese Sardines has arrived.  We have some extra for the weekend.  Chilean Turbot looks great at 3 to 4 pounds each.  Unfortunately, we got cleaned out of Escolar and won't have any more until Monday.
Monster Catfish from Delaware showed up today.  We only have a few fish, but they are over 30 pounds each.  Despite being a hideous creature, they are incredibly sustainable. 
Florida sent us lovely items today.  5 to 10 pound Red Grouper with bright red gills to match are here.  All the Red Snapper you need came in.  We have them from 2 pounds all the way up to 8.  Fresh 16/20 Shrimp from the Gulf arrived as well.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
It's another gloomy day outside.  At least it's not cold.  Excellent items arrived today with more great stuff scheduled to come in tonight.  We have a 475 pound Swordfish from the Gulf of Mexico that arrived this morning.  I'm going to repeat that.  We have a 475 pound Swordfish!  It's roughly the size of my couch.  Head off and gutted Wild Coho Salmon from British Columbia came in again and looks great.  They are about 10 pounds each.  Local 3 to 5 pound John Dory is available today.  We are set to receive some Farmed Icelandic Halibut tonight.  They are going to be between 10 and 20 pounds each. 
We are set to receive a big delivery from Florida tonight.  It's going to be one jam packed truck with Red Grouper which will probably be between 5 and 10 pounds.  The truck is also going to have Red Snapper of all sizes, fresh 16/20 Shrimp and Large Stone Crab Claws.
Whelks from Long Island made a surprise appearance today.  Razor Clams from Maine are also available.  U/10 Scallops are finally available again for the weekend.  We have some in today from Massachusetts and are getting more in tomorrow.  Beautiful 10/20 Scallops keep pouring in from Cape May, NJ.
We got in some wonderful items from Central and South America.  Ecuadorian Escolar finally made it back.  They're about 10 pounds each.  Farm raised Cobia from Panama looks fantastic at 7 pounds per piece.  Chile sent us lovely 3/4 Turbot today and we are set to receive Panamanian Mahi Mahi overnight. 
Don't forget that tomorrow is our weekly delivery of Sardines.  They come to us directly from Portugal and are always terrific quality.

Tuesday, December 6, 2011


Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
We have some great Local items for you to enjoy today.  Big 3 to 5 pound John Dory showed up this morning and is incredibly fresh.  Local Amberjack is available.  We don't have much, so if you want some I recommend preordering it.  The fish are rather large.  One of them is 25 pounds.  Some of the biggest Bluefish we've had in a long time are here.  They look great and are averaging 10 pounds each.  Long Island Wild Striped Bass keeps coming in despite New York running low on tags.
More of the terrific Razor Clams we've had recently are expected to come in tonight from Maine.  We also have nice, local Littleneck Clams, Topneck Clams, and Cherrystone Clams.  They are all coming our way from Long Island.
Gorgeous Chatham Cod is around.  They are available with the head on or off.  We are getting in more Farmed Halibut from Norway.  The quality of these has been great lately and they average between 10 and 15 pounds.  We have super fresh Swordfish in house today.  They are smaller pups.  If you are looking for something bigger, we are getting in a 300 pound monster of a marker Swordfish tonight.  Farm Raised Cobia from Panama is also here.  They are 5 to 7 pounds each and look great.

12.5.11 update

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
Hopefully the warm temperatures will bring in the crowds.  We have great items available today.  Wild King and Wild Coho Salmon showed up this morning.  They are both around 10 pounds each with the head off and already gutted.  This will get you a great yield.  They are coming in from British Columbia.  Keep in mind that they are bycatch, so we don't know about the availability to come.  After getting cleaned out over the weekend, we got in some beautiful Tuna and Swordfish overnight.
Long Island Wild Striped Bass is still looking great and coming to us daily.  My buyer says New York is starting to run out of tags for the fish. This means availability can become an issue.  East Coast Halibut is available, but the price has gone up.  We are trying to find more farmed Halibut from Norway.  Beautiful Dayboat Monkfish tails are here.  They came in from Boston.  Also from Boston, 3 to 5 pound Blackfish arrived today and are super fresh. 
We managed to track down some U/12 Scallops today.  They're from Massachusetts.  We aren't sure how availability looks in the days to come, so we have lots of 10/20 Dayboat Scallops from New jersey to help cover the difference.  Nantucket Bay Scallops keep coming in and look terrific.
Florida sent us some lovely Golden Tilefish.  They are weighing in between 7 and 9 pounds each.  Large Stone Crab Claws, also from Florida made an appearance this morning and are fresh as always.
On this day in 1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution was passed and ratified, ending national Prohibition.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
Unseasonably warm weather has hopefully made you nice and busy.  We have great items available today to help restock your walk-ins.  Gorgeous Local Swordfish came our way this morning.  You want Scallops?  We've got Scallops.  Super fresh 10/20 Scallops from Cape May are here.  Nantucket Bay is still sending stuff our way almost daily.  We are getting a small amount of U/10 Scallops from Boston tonight.  Please preorder this item if you need it.  We have a very limited amount.
Alaska is currently fishing chum salmon.  Through bycatch, we've got our hands on Wild Coho Salmon.  They are 10 pounds each with the head already off and gutted.  Wild King Salmon is also available for tomorrow, also a result of bycatch.  We are not expecting them to be around often, but they may pop in from time to time.
Razor Clams from Maine are here.  We haven't seen them in a while.  They look incredibly fresh.  More Pompano is available tonight for tomorrow's delivery.  Please order in advance.  Our Farmed Idaho Trout has been perfect lately.  We tend to take these great fish for granted.  But the quality and consistency lately has been impeccable.

November 28, 2011

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
A new week is here.  Let's hope people can pull themselves away from the "Cyber Monday" deals online and come have a great meal at your restaurant.  East Coast Canadian and Alaskan Halibut are available today.  The Canadian fish are 10 to 50 pounds, while the Alaskan are 10 to 20 pounds each.  A beautiful Swordfish from Canada came in this morning.  Long Island Wild Striped Bass is still running strong at 8 to 20 pounds each.  Dayboat 10/20 Scallops from Cape May, NJ came in this morning and look great.  There are currently no U/10 Scallops available.  Hard-Shell Canadian Lobster prices are holding steady right now, but we are expecting the price to go up soon.
My buyer says the Louisiana Lump Crabmeat we have today is the best he's ever had.  Florida sent us amazing items this morning.  Farm raised Sturgeon looks like a great choice.  Large Stone Crab Claws still look delicious.  Fresh 16/20 Shrimp are here.  Golden Tilefish came in.  They are between 5 and 15 pounds and are super fresh.  Red Snapper from Florida are a can't miss option today and are available in 2/4 and 4/6 pounds.  Red Grouper is here.  They haven't been around as often as we would like, but today's fish look terrific.  Pompano will be available tomorrow.  Please order them ahead of time to ensure we get it for you.
Beautiful head off and gutted Mahi Mahi from Panama showed up today.  Panama also sent us more of that lovely Cobia.  Ecuadorian Escolar looks amazing today as well.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
New England came through today with U/10 Scallops.  We haven't seen them in a while, but hopefully they are here to stay.  We also got more 10/20 Scallops which have been gorgeous lately.  High winds and low production have temporarily halted the supply of Nantucket Bay Scallops.  We are hoping to get some in tonight.  All-Leg Crabmeat showed up this morning as well.  The Wild Striped Bass we got in today is from Long Island.  They are bigger than they have been lately averaging 10 to 15 pounds each.
Ecuadorian Escolar looks like a great choice today.  Wild Cobia is available today too.  We have absolutely stunning 1 to 2 pound Chilean Turbot.  I've never seen Turbot this fresh. 
We got in some Fresh 16/20 Shrimp from the Gulf.  My buyer thinks this will be the last we see of them this week due to the holiday.  So if you need them, I'd preorder them today.  Sturgeon from Florida came in this morning.  We are expecting to receive more Golden Tilefish tonight.  They have been gigantic lately, and we expect more of the same from these great North Carolina fish.
We have two types of Halibut available.  Wild East Coast Halibut from Canada and Farmed from Norway are the choices.  The Canadian Halibut are huge.  They are about 40 pounds each.  The Norwegian fish are smaller at about 10 to 15 pounds each with the head on.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


It's Restaurant Week!!! For those of you participating, I'm sure you are eager to show off your best culinary skills to hungry patrons that may not ever get the chance to dine in your excellent restaurants.  We are very excited to be able to offer you all the seafood specials you will need to make this Restaurant Week a successful one.  Gorgeous Dayboat Swordfish from the Carolinas arrived last night.  We also have fantastic Dayboat U/10 and 10/20 Scallops from our friends in Barnegat Bay, N.J.  Unfortunately, Wild Striped Bass may be an issue until Massachusetts opens up its season on Wednesday.


Maine has some great treats for us today that are perfect for a special.  Whelks and Steamer Clams are here and are some of the freshest I've ever seen.  We also have nice, big, green Mussels fresh from New Zealand.


Wild King and Sockeye Salmon keep coming in from Alaska.  They are both Head-Off and Gutted.  The Sockeye are about 5 pounds and the Wild King Salmon are huge.  I saw a 20 pounder this morning.  Steelhead Trout for $3.95!!!  I'm going to repeat that... Steelhead Trout for $3.95!!!  These amazing 4 to 10 pounders are coming to us directly from the Quinalt Native American Tribe in Washington State.  These highly sustainable fish are super fresh and look amazing.


We Have King Mackerel from Florida.  These giants are anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds each.  I know that may be too much for you, so we will happily cut whatever size you need.  We also have some Cobia in house today.  These farm raised Panamanian fish are coming to us with the head off and gutted.  This ensures a terrific yield on these delightful fish.


On this day in 1804 Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr had their infamous duel in Weehawken, N.J.  A Vice President shot a Secretary of the Treasury who died the next day.  This is like Joe Biden shooting Timothy Geithner.  I know it isn't a quote.  But I'll be damned if it isn't amazing.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


After limited availability on a few items yesterday, we are jam packed with your favorites for today.  As promised we have some updates regarding the Red Tide outbreak off the coast of British Columbia.  As it stands now, our best case scenario for seeing any Kusshi or other B.C. Oysters is July 18th.  They need to come back with 3 consecutive negative tests in order to harvest.  In other Oyster news: Skookum Oysters will not be available until October.  They are in the process of spawning.  Because of the shortage of British Columbia Oysters, Kumomoto are in high demand, thus resulting in limited availability.  Please order them in advance.


We have some excellent Local items today.  Gigantic Mahi Mahi from North Carolina arrived this morning.  Jumbo Local Porgies and Local John Dory are sure to make a fantastic special on this sunny summer day.  Big Dayboat Monkfish Tails are here.  These hideous fish luckily came in with the head already off and are anywhere from 7 to 10 pounds.  


After shorting everyone today on Dorade (we're sorry), we are expecting to get some in overnight for delivery tomorrow.  We have gorgeous 5 to 10 pound Red Grouper from Panama today.  Tomorrow is Sardine Thursday here at Wild Edibles.  Portuguese Sardines will be arriving overnight.  Stock up on these treats.  We can never keep them around.


From the complete other side of the world, we got in some Tasmanian Sea Trout and New Zealand Mussels.  The Trout are incredibly fresh and are between 5 and 7 pounds each.  A lot of you have fallen in love with these delicious fish.  For those of you who haven't tried it yet, I strongly recommend giving them a try.  The Mussels are big with a green tint to them.  They are perfect for a special.


Wild Striped Bass is here.  We have 5 to 8 pound fish from Maryland and 10+ pound fish from Rhode Island.  Massachusetts opens next week which should give us a break on price.  New York's season is open, but no fish are reaching us.  They are holding onto their tags to play the market.  Alaska keeps coming through for us with gorgeous Salmon.  Wild King Salmon arrived overnight.  For the first time this season they are coming to us with the head already off.  This will produce better yields.  We also got in more Wild Sockeye Salmon.  These run smaller than the King Salmon but also come in gutted with the head off.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


I hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July and have all of your fingers still attached.  A new week has started and with the warm temperatures sticking around, hopefully we are all nice and busy.  Branzini prices are going up due to all the striking and general chaos going on in Greece.  We do not have a whole lot of specialty items for you today.  The day after a holiday is always tough with shipping and a lot of fish is just simply not available. 


Gorgeous East Coast Halibut from Canada arrived overnight.  They are anywhere from 10 to 50 pounds each.  Canada celebrated their Independence Day on Friday.  But since they essentially earned their independence due to England's boredom, they don't celebrate much and went right back to fishing.


Barnegat Bay, New Jersey came through for us in a big way today.  Stunning U/10 and 10/20 Scallops came in this morning.  With a great color and super firm flesh, they are sure to be a crowd pleaser. 


Wild King and Wild Sockeye Salmon arrived from Alaska late last night.  The quality of both is flawless.  The Sockeye are coming in at about 6 pounds with the head already off.  The King Salmon are averaging about 12 pounds each.  You can't go wrong with either of these.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
Number 1 Male Blue Claw Crabs from Maryland are here!!!  They are the state crustacean of Maryland.  I'm not kidding.  They take Crabs so seriously down there that they have gotten together and determined which crab best represents their state.  Blue Claws are native to the Western Atlantic Ocean from Nova Scotia to Argentina.  They are omnivorous and will eat pretty much anything.  They can grow up to 9 inches wide.  The blue claws are caused by pigmentation in the shell.  Once cooked however, they turn a reddish orange color.  We are selling these beauties by the bushel.  Please contact us if you have any questions about these wonderful treats.
Dayboat U/10 Scallops from Barnegat Bay arrived overnight.  They are incredibly fresh.  Wild Sockeye Salmon from the Copper River and Wild King Salmon from Alaska are both available.  They are so fresh they look like they were swimming last night.  After the terrible weather the Northeast had last week, we are lucky that Canadian East Coast Oyster production is still going strong.
Florida is still coming up big for us this week with more beautiful Amberjack.  We are also expecting to receive more Florida Red Grouper overnight.  The quality has been terrific.  I expect the same great fish tomorrow.
We are well stocked on 800/1000 gram Branzini.  This specific size isn't consistently available.  Head off Corvina from Panama came in this morning.  They are averaging 7 to 9 pounds.  They look really fresh and without the heads, they should produce a great yield.  We are getting 3/4 Chilean Turbot tonight as well.  These are always great quality when we are lucky enough to have them here.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


Another weekend is closing in on us.  Be sure to stock up on plenty of delicious seafood.  We have a fantastic new item available for you to enjoy.  Head-On Royal Red Shrimp.  They are available in U/10, U/12 and U/15 sizes.  They are frozen immediately on the ship because they are caught 40 to 60 miles offshore.  They come in 2 pound packages.  Unlike most shrimp, Royal Red Shrimp prefer deep waters.  They are generally found between 800 and 1500 feet, but have been known to go as deep as 2400 feet.  They never see sunlight and are found in 45-55 degree water.  They love the sandy mud and silt of the gulf floor.  They have a brilliant crimson red color.  We can thank Frank Patti for these gems.  He was the first to commercially catch these off the coast of Pensacola in 1966.  Only about 250 fishermen are licensed to catch Royal Red Shrimp.  Don't hesitate to call us regarding any questions you have about this exciting new item.


The south isn't done yet.  More gorgeous Strawberry Grouper from Florida came in today.  They are averaging 7 to 9 pounds each.  We also have more super fresh Blackfish.  These delicious fish are making their reverse Sherman's March from Georgia and are now in South Carolina.  By the end of the summer they will work their way all the way to Nova Scotia.


New England seems unshaken by the capture of FBI Most Wanted fugitive Whitey Bulger.  They sent us some amazing fish today.  Rhode Island Wild Striped Bass keeps arriving daily and looking flawless.  Gorgeous Gloucester Cod came in along with Large and Jumbo Fluke from Boston


We are still getting our hands on Local Mako Shark.  The cuts of Mako that I've seen are nice and firm and super bloody.  Black Seabass from Jersey showed up this morning.  They have bright red gills and are shockingly fresh.  Unfortunately, Soft-Shell Crabs are not available today and we aren't sure whether or not they will come our way for the weekend.


East Coast Halibut from our friends in the Great White North arrived overnight.  Halibut may be a little tough to come by this weekend.  The price of Wild King Salmon continues to drop.  As we all know, the Wild King Salmon season is always over before you know it.  Don't miss out on these fantastic fish.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


Today is the first day of summer.  We all know what that means.  It is about to get busy.  Luckily, we are well stocked on all of your customer's favorite seafood.  We have some wonderful Local items today.  We have Local Mako Shark in house.  The firm flesh and great coloring make this a great special.  We have more of the great Local Tuna and Swordfish.  The quality of these fish is unmatched.


We have fantastic Jumbo Fluke available from Boston.  We also got in some more of the super fresh Blackfish from South Carolina that so many of you seem to love.  Blackfish migrate from Georgia all the way to Nova Scotia.  They tend to live near wrecks, rocks, or other bottom structures such as wrecks.  They have black rubbery lips and extremely powerful jaws.  With their molar like back teeth they crush the mollusks and crustaceans which make up their primary diet. 


Florida Red Snapper are continuing to come in daily.  We have them available in all sizes and the quality is stunning.  We also have East Coast Halibut today.  East Coast Halibut is primarily found on the continental shelf.  These gorgeous fish are coming to us from Canada.  Sockeye Salmon from Alaska arrived overnight.  With their superior flesh, color and consistency; they are among the most sought after salmon on earth.  We also have incredibly fresh Wild King Salmon from Alaska.  The quality of these fish is terrific.  They have bright red gills and smell perfect.

Wednesday, June 15, 2011



Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


We have some amazing Local items for you to enjoy today.  We got in more of that beautiful Local Swordfish.  The quality remains excellent.  Local Yellowfin Tuna also came in on the same jam packed boat.  Fantastic Fluke from Long Island showed up overnight.  We have these incredibly fresh fish in every size.  We also have some of those delightful Razor Clams from Long Island as well.  These are sure to make a terrific special. 


Not to be outdone, New England came up big today with stunningly fresh Dayboat Monkfish from MassachusettsMaine also sent us wonderful looking Steamer Clams which are a guaranteed hit on any plate.  Canada and Florida felt a little left out and sent us some great stuff as well.  Amazing Dayboat Halibut from Nova Scotia arrived and couldn't be fresher.  Florida sent us some Fresh, never frozen Rock Shrimp that smell incredible.


Now onto the Salmon:  We have great looking Scottish Salmon in today.  They are coming in between 11 and 13 pounds.  We also have Alaskan King Salmon available.  These beauties are Troll Caught and look like they were swimming this morning. 


We are expecting to get Guatemalan Mahi Mahi tonight.  The quality of these Mahi has been flawless and I'd expect the same great fish tonight.  Australian Hiramasa is here.  These terrific tasting and versatile fish are averaging 5 to 7 pounds each.  Tomorrow is Thursday and you know what that means; Portuguese Sardines will be arriving tonight for delivery tomorrow morning.  Don't miss out on these treats as they only arrive once a week.

Monday, June 13, 2011

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


A new week is upon us.  Let's get the week started off right with some fantastic seafood.  We have some amazing Local items for your customers to enjoy today.  Mahi Mahi and Wahoo arrived this morning.  The Mahi Mahi are nice and large with the head on.  The Wahoo is huge at almost 70 pounds.  We are happy to cut this big guy up to whatever size you need.  Beautiful Yellowfin Tuna and Swordfish came in last night from the same local boat in the Carolinas.


Wild Striped Bass from Rhode Island is still coming in daily and look excellent.  Super fresh East Coast Halibut is in.  The fish are averaging around 30 pounds each.  Cod from our friends in Massachusetts is here.  The quality is excellent as usual.  Troll caught Wild King Salmon from Alaska keeps finding its way to Queens and is amazingly fresh.  Jumbo Soft-Shell Crabs are still the way to go.  Hotels and Prime Soft-Shells have had limited availability of late.


We got in some very fresh Tasmanian Sea Trout.  These organically farmed raised fish are high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids.  We also got in some Kingklip.  These 3 to 7 pound beauties are found in the Atlantic at depths up to 1500 feet.  They have a sweet, mild flavor with a firm texture resembling a Monkfish.  However, once cooked the flesh has large flakes to it.  They are a terrifying looking creature. Luckily they came in with the head already off so I don't get nightmares.  They are excellent smoked, poached, baked, steamed or grilled.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


Another weekend is coming up.  Make sure you stock up on all the seafood favorites from Wild Edibles that your customers love.  And if your ovens break down, you can always cook it on the sidewalk.  We have some amazing local items for you today.  Dayboat U/10 and 10/20 Scallops keep arriving looking flawless from Barnegat Bay in New Jersey.  Wild Striped Bass season is open in Rhode Island.  For a state the size of Brooklyn, they are hauling in some really great fish.  The entire population must be out on these boats because are seeing a lot of fish coming in regularly.  Jumbo Porgies came in today.  They are locally caught and super fresh. 


We got in some wonderful stuff from places much colder than here, Florida and Central America.  We have more wonderful looking Mahi Mahi and Corvina from Panama.  These fish came from the same place as yesterday's and the quality remains excellent.  Gorgeous Golden Tilefish from Florida is here.  They are on the smaller side at about a 5 pound average.  Red Groupers also came in from Florida.  They are between 5 and 10 pounds with bright red gills.  Unfortunately, we are unsure if Black Sea Bass will be available for the weekend.  However, with Wild Striped Bass readily available and the price dropping little by little, it should make a great substitute.


We are supposed to be receiving Dayboat East Coast Halibut from Canada overnight.  I've been told expect some really beautiful fish.  Green Lip Mussels from New Zealand are currently available.  These huge mussels should make a great special.  Local Blowfish Tails are available as well.  We have a new product we would like for you to try out.  Blue Claw Crab Roe from Maryland.  They come in 1 pound packages.  If you have any questions about these specialty items, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,


Well, another week is upon us.  You know what that means…Amazing seafood at great prices from your friends at Wild Edibles.  We have fantastic items for you today.  Huge Wreckfish from South Carolina are here.  They are coming in around 20 pounds each.  If you don't need that much, we will happily cut whatever size you need.  Wreckfish are found mainly on the Atlantic coast near caves and shipwrecks.  This is how it draws the name, Wreckfish.  They have prominent spiny fins and stay in schools of at least 5 fish.  Local Tuna from our friends in Jersey are coming in tonight.  We also have beautiful Dayboat U/10 Scallops from Barnegat Bay, N.J.


Wild Sockeye Salmon from the Copper River in Alaska is available.  These fish are consistently excellent.  They store up extra Omega 3 Fatty Acids for their 300 miles trek to spawn.  This makes them some of the most sought after salmon in the world.  We are unsure whether or not Prime and Hotel Soft-Shell Crabs will be available tomorrow.  We do however have Jumbo and Whales.


Amazingly fresh Onaga Queen Snapper came in today.  They are big at an average of 7 to 9 pounds and come from Florida.  The bright red gills and crystal clear eyes make these Onaga some of the freshest I've ever seen.  Sticking with our friends from Florida; we have nice, larger Golden Tilefish and Farm Raised Sturgeon available as well.  They are both averaging about 8 pounds per fish. 


We have Chilean Turbot coming in overnight for delivery tomorrow.  I've been told to expect the same great quality fish we are used to.  Great looking Black Grouper from Panama showed up this morning.  They are coming in between 5 and 10 pounds.  Nice, big Wahoo from Ecuador came in early this morning.  They are super fresh.  For those of you unfamiliar with Wahoo, here is some information.  They have an elongated body with scarcely visible scales.  They are iridescent blue in color with silver sides and vertical blue stripes.  They have a large mouth similar to a Mackerel and are some of the fastest fish in the world reaching speeds upwards of 50 mph.


"You will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely....The free men of the world are marching together to victory. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory. Good luck, and let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking." -General Dwight D. Eisenhower


Today is the 67th anniversary of D-Day.  On June 6, 1944 one of the largest amphibious assaults in human history took place as the Allied Forces crossed the English Channel to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi control.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
The weather is beautiful, and it's Thursday.  Time to start thinking about what you'll need for the busy weekend ahead.  Wild King Salmon and Ivory King Salmon are both available.  The Wild King is troll caught and coming to us with the head off and gutted.  The Ivory King is coming in with the head on.  They are both from Alaska and couldn't be nicer.  Don't be left out on these.  We have Pike from Lake Erie in house today.  They are coming in between 3 and 5 pounds and look great.  Local Tuna came in this morning as well.  The quality is what you've come to expect from us, amazing. 
Large and Jumbo Black Seabass are still available and the price is holding lower than expected.  New England isn't messing around today.  Gorgeous Dayboat Monkfish and Dayboat Market Cod arrived this morning.  The Monkfish is ranging from 4 to 8 pounds.  The Cod are a bit on the small side, but the fish look super fresh.  Gorgeous Whelks, Periwinkles and Steamers also arrived today from Maine.  They are sure to make a great special. 
Beautiful Mahi Mahi from Guatemala arrived overnight.  They are stunningly fresh.  You want Hiramasa?  We've got your Hiramasa.  Fantastic Imported Hiramasa from Australia is here.  We also have the Local Hiramasa (Yellowtail) that so many of you are in love with.  It looks like Fluke prices are starting to return to normal and the quality is excellent.
Unfortunately, it looks like Uni isn't going to be available tomorrow.  Please plan accordingly.  Live 10/20 Scallops in the Shell from Montauk are available for tomorrow.  Please pre-order this item to ensure we get them tonight.  Canada is apparently afraid of some bad weather because East Coast Oyster production has come to a grinding halt.  This is strange because, well, it's Canada.  I think there is a verse in their National Anthem about loving lousy weather.  Don't worry, we are going to have plenty of West Coast Oysters to hold us over.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
We have some wonderful items for you today.  Incredibly fresh Fluke is available.  It is very limited, so please call and pre-order what you need.  Local Mako Shark is here.  The quality and price are excellent.  More is available tomorrow if needed.  Wild Ivory King Salmon arrived overnight and looks amazing.  The white flesh looks to have a great texture and they are about 15 pounds each.
Imported Hiramasa from Australia arrived this morning.  They come from the "Great Southern Ocean's" cool, pristine waters.  They are a finfish with a firm, white flesh.  Gorgeous Golden Corvina from Panama is here.  The fish look terrific and are coming in between 5 and 7 pounds.  We will be getting Imported Sardines from Portugal tonight.  Make sure you stock up.  These little treats are only available late in the week. 
The price of Jumbo Black Seabass continues to drop.  The quality remains excellent and should continue to stay that way.  Generally found in reefs, these fish primarily eat Shrimp, Crabs and other Mollusks.  This diet contributes to the intricately flavored sweet, white meat.  If you are interested in a whole loin of #2 Tuna, we are happy to offer it to you at $8 per pound.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
Always start with the bad news, right?  We weren't able to get any #2+ Tuna for the weekend.  The good news you ask?  You'll get #1 Tuna at 2+ prices!!!  The fish look beautiful and will be perfect for the holiday weekend.  Amazingly fresh Local Swordfish came in again and looks great.  Monkfish that was still squirming when cut from Massachusetts arrived this morning.  We have them available in all sizes.  We managed to get our hands on some Wild Striped Bass from Rhode Island.  Please pre-order or leave a substitute for them.  We don't have much available and we don't want you to get stuck with nothing.  Stellar Soft-Shell Crabs are in today with more coming in tomorrow.  The quality is exceptional.
Gorgeous Guatemalan Escolar came in again overnight.  Their freshness can't be beat.  We have some fantastic items from Florida today.  Red Grouper with bright red gills to match and fantastic Golden Tilefish.  The Grouper are averaging between 5 and 10 pounds while the Tilefish are coming in all the way from 5 to 18 pounds.
Wild Copper River King Salmon from Alaska keeps arriving fresher and fresher as the season goes along.  The fish look terrific and are highly sustainable.  More East Coast Halibut is here at the same great quality we've come to expect.  The fish are ranging between 10 and 30 pounds.  The price of Large and Jumbo Black Seabass has come down a bit and the fish look great.  With Bluepoint Oysters unavailable, we stocked up on extra Pine Island Oysters which should make a perfect substitute.
Imported Sardines from Portugal are in with their usual flawless quality.  We have a new product we want to tell you a little about.  It is called "Naked" Lobster.  It is a 1.25 pound Lobster that has been vacuumed out of its shell and kept intact.  What you are left with is 6.5 ounces of whole, raw Lobster meat.  We are getting them shipped here from Brazil.  They come in frozen to ensure their freshness.  Please call if you have any questions about this exciting new item.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
Another busy Spring weekend is coming.  Make sure you are well stocked on all of your customers favorite seafood.  We have some beautiful Local items for you.  Local Head-on Mahi-Mahi came in this morning and is incredibly fresh.  We have Local Yellowfin and Big Eye Tuna today as well.  We had some trouble finding Tuna earlier this week, but we seem to be back on track.  We also have great looking Local Long-Line Swordfish available. 
We have some nice specialty options for you as well.  Boston Mackerel came in and looks super fresh.  We also got in some Brazilian Rouget and Smelts.  Any of them will make a great special.  It looks like Fluke is going to be very limited this weekend.  In preparation for this, our buyers tracked down some beautiful George's Bank Flounder.  Unfortunately, All-Leg and Maine Crabmeat will not be available this weekend due to the weather in New England.
In addition to our normal Salmon options, we brought in some New Zealand Farmed King Salmon.  The fish look amazing.  We also got in more Copper River King Salmon.  These wild fish store up extra Omega 3 Fatty Acids on their 300 mile trek to spawning grounds.  They are very sustainable and controlled by the Alaskan Department of Fish and Game.
Portuguese Sardines are in.  They are only around at the end of the week so stock up if you need them.  We have beautiful Golden Corvina available.  The fish are between 5 and 7 pounds.  We have great Red Grouper from Florida coming in at about 5 pounds a piece.  We also have Ecuadorian Black Grouper.  The fish are close to 50 pounds.  We will happily cut them up to whatever size you need.  We also have a few pieces of Live West Coast Urchin available for tomorrow.  Please call and place your order in advance for these because we have a very limited number coming in tonight.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
New England's fishermen braved the lousy weather and really came through with some beautiful items today.  Incredibly fresh, monster Monkfish Tails came in this morning from Boston.  They are bloody and smell great.  Great looking Gloucester Cod also arrived this morning and couldn't be fresher.  We also got in some more Razor Clams from Maine.  They look delicious and will make a great special. 
Amazing Golden Tilefish from Barnegat Bay, N.J. came in this morning.  They are about 10 to 12 pounds each.  Super fresh and large Farmed Striped Bass arrived this morning.  We have great Atlantic Sea Bream (a.k.a. Jumbo Porgies) in this morning.  They are incredibly fresh, local, and the price is right. 
Jumbo Black Seabass seems to be returning to normal availability.  The quality is great and should stay that way.  We tracked down some great Tuna for you.  It wasn't easy, but our buyers found some.  The fish look terrific.  West Coast Halibut is scheduled to arrive tonight from Alaska.  The quality has been great lately.  I'd expect the same thing for tomorrow.  We have more Blackfish from South Carolina here today.  They look amazingly fresh with bright red gills.

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
We have some wonderful items for you today.  Beautiful Mahi Mahi and Swordfish are here.  Both of these fish are locally caught and look amazing.  The price on the Mahi Mahi is way down.  We also have some super fresh Razor Clams and Steamers from Maine.  It is rare that we have both at the same time.  Normally they will only go after one or another.  Either of these treats will make a great special.
East and West Coast Halibut are available in sizes ranging from 10 to 40 pounds.  The quality of these fish has been superb and should continue to be that way for the months to come.  Large and Jumbo Black Seabass are becoming available again.  The size and quality is back to what is expected of these versatile and delicious fish.  Great looking Panama Red Grouper is here.  They are between 5 and 10 pounds. 
Unfortunately, Tuna is hard to find right now.  We may have some tomorrow.  We will be getting in a lot for Thursday delivery.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
Copper River Wild King Salmon is here.  The Copper River is the 10th largest river in the country.  These Salmon have to travel 300 miles to their spawning grounds.  To be able to handle the journey, they store up extra Omega-3 Fatty Acids.  This makes Copper River King Salmon some of the most sought after Salmon in the world.  Salmon runs are carefully managed for long-term sustainability by the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game.  They use several counting methods at various points throughout the river to count each Salmon going up river to ensure adequate numbers migrate to the spawning grounds each year.  Delicious, sustainable, and healthy; sounds like a winner to me!

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
The weekend is almost here.  Be sure to stock up on everything you'll need to make it through the busy weekend.  If you do get caught in a pinch, don't forget that we are open on Sunday.  We got more Local Hiramasa (Yellowtail) in today.  They are beautiful fish again and are hook and line caught.  Fresh 16/20 Shrimp from Florida arrived this morning and look great.  Wild Cobia is here.  The fish couldn't be fresher.  Brazilian Rouget (Red Mullet) came in this morning.  They look fantastic.  We tracked down some more Golden Tilefish from Florida.  The bright red gills and bright coloring guarantees great quality.  We also have wonderful Blackfish from South Carolina coming in daily.
We have Hard-Shell Blue Crabs from Maryland.  We also are stocking up on all sizes of Soft-Shell Crabs for the weekend.  The quality of both is terrific.  The season is in full swing.  You can expect great quality Crabs for the months to come!
We have gorgeous Sow Hake in from Massachusetts.  They are averaging over 15 pounds.  Imported Sardines from Portugal are here.  They are unavailable early in the week.  Now is the perfect time to stock up.  We are expecting to get in more #1 Tuna tonight.  My buyer tells me to expect beautiful fish.  Stunningly fresh Jumbo Fluke arrived this morning.  The price has gone up a hair, but the fish is amazing. 
Unfortunately, miserable weather has halted production of East Coast Uni from Maine.  There won't be any available for about 2 months.  We are hoping to track down some West Coast Uni to hold us over.  Also, All-Leg Crabmeat won't be available until the middle of next week.  Please plan accordingly.  We also aren't seeing any Black Seabass around.  When we find some, we will be sure to let you know.

Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
It is a perfect day outside.  Hopefully this will fill up your seats tonight.  We have some wonderful Local items for you today.  We have gorgeous King Mackerel.  They have bright red gills and look incredibly fresh.  We got in more South Carolina Blackfish.  A lot of you seem to love it and the quality is excellent.  Amazingly fresh Sushi Fluke from Long Island showed up this morning.  They look great.  We also have some very nice Gloucester Cod in house.  Don't miss out on these.  They look great and the price is probably going to go up soon.
Massive Pacific Black Grouper are here.  They look amazing.  We are expecting to get in Florida Sturgeon and 1 to 2 pound Pink Snappers tonight.  The quality lately has been superb on both and should continue to stay that way. 
We got in some lovely Tuna today.  It has a great color to it and smells great.  Fresh Alaskan Spot Prawns are also available.  They are a head off U/10 size.  We have incredibly fresh Kumomoto Oysters from Washington and our Bluepoints can't be beat.
