Atlantic Salmon – Some producers were forced to harvest smaller salmon prematurely, which put more fish on the market than expected – prices are down on 8/10s and 10/12s – larger fish holding firm to historic highs – after the Memorial Day holiday, we should see some relief in pricing.
Local Soft Crabs – No significant run has materialized yet in Maryland- soft crabs are expensive and a challenge to keep in stock so far – but that can change in an instant – there is always hope!
Local Wild Rock – Still a few fish being caught locally – New York is producing fish also – fillet prices are down.
Local Fluke – Virginia and Carolina are closed until November now – more expensive fish coming from Rhode Island.
Mahi – Has dried up almost completely with this full moon – prices are up significantly.
Local Oyster Line Up – Seaside salty oysters – Chunus, Wild Ass Ponies, Hog Islands, Salt Shakers Bayside “sweet” oysters – Blackberries, Sweet Jesus, Choptank Sweets, Local medium 200 counts.
Canadian Dayboat Halibut – Ample supply coming in but still not much of a value at $18.95/lb.
American Red Snapper and Black Grouper – Same story as the halibut, but a little more expensive on each fish.
Local Black Bass – We should see some this week, but NY has the price up.
