MARKET UPDATE

Royal Hawaiian Seafood Market Report

 

Fanny Bay & Kusshi Oyster

  • There's a PSP (paralytic shellfish poison) closure in the areas where Fanny Bay and Kusshi oysters are grown. It's a naturally occurring algae bloom. They will be out of commission for a few weeks. Denman will be in its place of Fanny's for the meantime while oysters such as Shigoku or Beau Soleils will serve as a great alternative for the Kusshi.

 

Live Maine Lobsters

  • Prices continue to fall as availability gets stronger. Prices are down significantly from last week. It's a great time to showcase this item on your menus. 

 

Hand-Line Local Halibut

  • Fishing is starting to pick up at this time. The hand-line fish will command a higher price as these are day-boat fish brought to us literally hours out of our local waters. You will find that local halibut is much leaner than it's Alaskan counterpart. They'll much more suited for raw applications. Fish come in 5-10 lbs. each whole. Put this on the menu and tell your patrons that they are supporting our local community of fishermen and enjoy the freshness.

 

Mount Lassen Trout

  • The farm has notified us that there will be production shortages effectively.  Along with the production shortages, sizing on these farmed trout, will be small as well, with the current batch weighing between 1-3 pounds each, whole fish.

 

Local Groundfish

  • Poor fishing weather is making fishing for local Rockfish and Petrale pretty difficult at this time. We were able to get Petrale fillets from the North Pacific and minimal amount of Rockfish from BC Canada. True Cod fillets, as well as rock sole fillets from Alaska are also available as an alternative.

 

Painted Lady Oysters

  • We are proud to offer everyone a cost effective, but flavorful oyster called Painted Lady Oysters, which is harvested in the cold waters of Washington. You can expect the flavor of these oysters to be crisp. clean, and refreshing as the waters they are grown in. They are competitively priced, and have now taken over as our Happy Hour Oyster selection. Please contact us should more information is needed.
