Blue Fish

Ponce Inlet, Florida

An East coast tradition. More typically caught in northern waters, as the water temps cool, they migrate South (like much of the older Eastern Seaboard community) which means slower drivers and Bluefish.

Item of the Day – Verlasso Salmon

By | Gourmet, Item of the Day, Seafood, Smart Catch, What Chefs Want | No Comments

Verlasso Salmon

Item 48946 Whole 14-16 lb avg

Item 48102 Fillet

Verlasso Salmon is a premium Salmon raised using innovated farming  techniques to ensure the health of the Salmon, the health of our oceans, and the long-term availability of fish. Verlasso salmon has a buttery mouth feel, firm texture and mild flavor that complements any method of cooking or preparation. It is lower in fat than conventional farmed Salmon and offers a brighter taste with no residual fishy flavor on the palate or aroma in the kitchen. Clean, fresh and firm, Verlasso salmon makes every dish a masterpiece.
Each fish is carefully raised from egg to market size, humanely harvested, and processed all by Verlasso. The Salmon is raised in low density ocean pens in Patagonia, where there is very little industrial development and pristine waters. By replacing the fish oil and fish meal in the traditional Salmon diet with a diet rich in concentrated algae, the “fish in, fish out” ratio has been reduced to 1:1, therefore using fewer wild-caught feeder fish. No hormones or preventative antibiotics are used in raising Verlasso Salmon.

Fresh, Sustainable Seafood!

By | Seafood, Southern Foods, What Chefs Want

From Kelly Probst / Director of Seafood Purchasing for Boat Direct:

“Spent this past week with a number of mongers on the California coast. Well, what else am I going to do when Hurricanes have messed up our Atlantic side fishing so much?!? Hunt the US for cool, unique line caught fish to bring back home!”

“Encinitas has a special place in my heart. Grew up there, Surfed D Street for surf PE in high school and that’s where my love for fish was spawned. Fish are so cool! It is such a pleasure to work with you guys and to see how you treat such amazing creatures with so much respect as they deserve.”
