October Seafood Update

The Local Dungeness Crab Season returns tomorrow and we will (should) be shipping Whole Cooked Dungeness Crab next Monday! The sport and Native fisheries over the past few weeks have shown both good availability and very firm meat filled crab!

Coho Salmon are running righ now in NW Washington. We have not begun processing until we are a little farther ahead on King Salmon. Expect to see Coho in the next week or two on the website. At that time, we will also be bringing back our popular Wild Salmon Combo, featuring Wild King, Sockeye & Coho Salmon in a 9lb sampler. At that time, we will be retiring the King, Sockeye & Halibut Sampler we have offered for the past year.

The Hawaiian groundfish season begins tomorrow with the first catches of Opakapaka (Pink Snapper), Onaga (Ruby Snapper), Uku (Jobfish) and Hapu`upu`u (Hawaiian Grouper). We have not had much luck acquiring commercially viable quantities of Hapu`upu`u, as it is only known to exist in Hawaiian waters between Midway Island and the Big Island of Hawai'i. We are hopefull that we will have a special surprise for you this fall/winter with Hapu`upu`u.

Hawaiian Fish - Opah (Moonfish), Ahi/Shibi (Yellowfin Tuna), Shutome (Swordfish), Mahi Mahi, Hebi (Spearfish) and Ono (Wahoo) are all in good supply. Opakapaka (Hawaiian Pink Snapper) is in very short supply and the season opener in Hawaii is tomorrow. It will take a couple weeks for the pent up demand "rush" to slow down. So, we will continue to be in a low supply situation for a few more weeks. If you just want to try a couple of portions to add to your order, visit our Hawaiian Seafood by the Portion section!

Wild Salmon - We are in good shape with Wild Sockeye Salmon. Wild King Salmon are currently running and we are processing as fast as possible. We have somewhat caught up with our King Salmon demand barring any unusually large orders.
