Local Rockfish – Oyster power dredge season ended March 1 in many parts of Virginia, and many of those watermen will try to catch their quota of rock in the next 20 days. We are starting to see the first jumbo migratory rock enter the Bay on their spawning run.
Local Fluke – Plenty available this week. Prices have moved slightly higher to $12.95 per pound.
Local Black Sea Bass – Plenty in stock, but NY has run the price on fillets to $17.95 per pound – not horrible.
Wolffish – We had great feedback and sold out last week, so we have more arriving Wednesday this week.
Louisiana Drum – Beautiful 3-5 pound black drum, a close cousin to the red drum, were caught in the Gulf and makes for a delicious blackened fish for only $7.95 per pound.
Icelandic Cod Loins & H&G Cod – Huge storms in the North Atlantic have strained the supply of this delicious iconic fish over the past couple of weeks. Prices are up slightly on loins to $11 per pound, but remember they are 100% usable. No waste at all!
Yellowfin Tuna – Big landings in the Caribbean have dropped the tuna market significantly this week. #1 yellowfin and bigeye tuna loins are down $3 to only $17.95 per pound! #2+ loins dropped $2.50 to $14.50 per pound. This makes for a great week to serve some seared rare tuna on a salad or make tuna tartar!
Swordfish – The swordfish in the Caribbean are biting, and they are very affordable. Loins cut off of “double markers,” magnificent 200 pound plus fish, are only $13.95 per pound.
Prices are subject to change.
