Looking for certainty this week? Well, like the old saying goes, death and taxes are for sure, and, at least from Fortune, you can count on great fish. You can keep the fireworks going this week with some tried and true stalwarts and some exciting specials. Here’s what’s on the dock…
Wild Yukon Keta season has kicked off with mixed results and limited success. Landings are sporadic, to say the least, mostly due to water temps and levels. The season still hangs in the balance, but you can count on us this week to support your needs. Yukon Keta is many rungs above all other Keta when it comes to the quality ladder. The size and color of this fish are really in their own class when it comes to this species. The Yukon fish have a higher fat content than Sockeye and present beautifully on the plate. Plus, its one of the most price-attractive fish you can buy.
Sockeye landings are finally arriving in mass quantities, bringing the market down to friendly levels. This is another fish you want to run this week. Supply will be consistent, and quality will be ideal as flights are bringing us product daily. Sockeye is a healthy, light option, great on the plate to combat the hot summer sun.
In Florida, the boats are hitting on Grey Tilefish, also known as Blueline. These fish have a gorgeous bluish- grey skin and the meat is white, flaky, and succulent. They feed on crab and crustaceans, so their flavor is exquisitely sweet and delicate. They won’t be on them for long, so this is a perfect black board special for the week.
Also on the menu this week, we are getting some of our first catches of Wild Florida Pompano. Known to be a delicacy that hardly ever makes it out of the local area, Wild Pompano have a distinctive, buttery flavor and offer a tasty pop that few fish rival. Supply will be limited, as we are lucky to get just a few, but they are worth their weight in the hassle. Don’t miss out on this considerable find!
