FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Aloha to all you new & not-so-new Home-Delivery Customers — One discussion point that came up recently has to do with COOL (Country of Origin Labeling), which is meant to be informative, but in fact is very misunderstood, because it’s very misleading and not informative. A classic example is Frozen Alaskan Cod, which may caught by a Vietnamese fisherman on a Portuguese-flagged boat out of Vancouver, B.C. (Canada), fishing in Alaskan (USA) waters, and unloading the catch onto a Chinese-owned factory-at-sea ship, who then processes the fish that’s featured in your McFish sandwiches … and AK Cod is considered a “Product of China”. We know that the fish aren’t required to show their passport when swimming across borders, but there’s never been an AK Cod anywhere near China. But what if this fish (or any other) is labelled “Product of USA?” — That too is very uninformative, as the USA could mean AK or Hawaii or Maine or Florida or Texas or Calif — all different waters, all different ecosystems.
  • WILD KING SALMON is a “Product of Local Waters”, and we have a few fish in da’ ice, with boats out, so hoping for more arriving this week … NZ’s ‘BIG GLORY BAY’ & ‘ORA-KING’ SALMON are available. More West Coast =  LOCAL ALBACORE!!  /  Pt.REYES OYSTERS are back in operation  /  PETRALE SOLE  /  ROCK, TRUE, LING, & BLACK COD  /  AK & LOCAL HAL  /  YELLOWTAIL JACK  /  MEX’N STRIPED BASS & WHITE C-BASS  /  CLAMS, MUSSELS, more OYSTERS  /  …
  • Add a box of Fresh Produce to your Seafood order! We’re partnering with C & L Produce, a highly reputable wholesale distributor out of Oakland, to bring a variety of fresh fruits & veggies into your home. This offering is as an add-on, and not a replacement for our $100-minimum seafood order. Click on the two new buttons.
  • Check out the click-buttons, and some re-“Tail” below …
  • NEW! (to you guys) — PERUVIAN BAY SCALLOPS — avail in 1# IQF units, a “Dry” Scallop like our others, smaller meat (60/80-ct) with a much smaller price!
  • Some of y’all asking about picking up your order, rather than getting a delivery to your door — Yes, that’s definitely an option that’s available to you now, because they’ve eased the restrictions to get on to Pier 45 since the Fire. Parking is still a fuster-cluck, but c’mon on down to pick-up your order, quintuple-park for a few minutes, check out our facility and the S.F seafood industry & culture. And we’ll waive the $100-minimum and the $10 service-fee.

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • OK, a few tidbits for y’all — first, Aloha to the new readers of “Fish Tails”, and Aloha to the not-so-new too.  Haven’t shown much of my Giant’s fanaticism lately because, well, if you don’t have anything nice to say, it’s best to say nothing at all.
  • As it swelters around here, there’s big swells outside, so as it stands right now, there’s NO Uni this week, we’ll be thawing out BLACK COD, and we may be exclusive on having some Local WILD KING SALMON, which’ll disappear quick (is which’ll a word?), with none more expected in this week. As always, stay tuned for updates.

  • Top Choices: BAJA ‘Pacifico’ STRIPED BASS — PETRALE SOLE — TOMBO … and first-of-the-season LOCAL ALBACORE! — Lot’s More …
  • Pt.Reyes Oyster Co has some mechanical problems, Marin Miyagi Oyster Co won’t be able to ramp up production quick enough to completely fill the void, (and they’re more costly), so expect some BC and/or WA ‘subs’ on your OYSTER orders this week.
  • Re-“Tail” below …

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Quickie — Surprise, Surprise! — Some FRESH UNI came in!! And re-‘Tail’ from Tuesday is below …
  • Some have asked “Why can’t I get Local Wild King Salmon even though it’s in season?” — Well, if it’s “in season”, that means it’s a wild animal, because farmed seafood would typically never be “out of season”, and if it’s wild, that means availability is dependent on Mother Nature. Interesting to note that seafood is the extremely rare commercially-available protein (or even plant) that may be Wild. Anyway, LOCAL WILD KINGs are due in later this morning, so have at ’em!!
  • Prob’ly not gonna have Uni again this week — it’s another Mother Nature thing. But it’s looking good for a lotta’ Local fish, including FRESH SQUID; PETRALE SOLE; HALIBUT x3; COD x4 incl. BLACK COD; From down south, YELLOWTAIL JACK & WHITE C-BASS & HUACHINANGO (RED SNAPPER); Farm’d stuff from nearby includes B.C ATL SALMON, WA STEELHEAD, IDAHO TROUT, most of our MUSSELS, CLAMS, & OYSTERS are West Coast, and Check Out our REAL (not hybrid) STRIPED BASS, farmed off of the Pacific side of Baja!
  • From more distant shores: DRY-PACK SCALLOPS  /  BRONZINI  /  AHI & TOMBO & ONO  /  SWORDFISH  /  NZ ‘BIG GLORY BAY’ KING SAL & ORA-King SAL  /  ‘LOCH DUART’ SAL & ‘LOCH ETIVE’ STEELHEAD  /  more …

  • ‘Aloha’ to regular readers of da’ “Tail”, and a lotta’ new ones, too … gonna be a few limitations on availability this week due to windy conditions out there — Sea Urchin hang out close to the shore & rocks, making it too dangerous for the divers (and their boats) when it’s rough, so NO Uni this week. Just a little bit of Local WILD KING SALMON in da’ house, with none more confirmed yet for later this week. Stay tuned. We do have ‘BIG GLORY BAY’ and ‘ORA-KING’ SALMON, Great ‘subs’, highly recommended & suggested. Looks like there’ll be NO Local Halibut either, but we do have ALASKAN HAL available, with some SoCAL HAL due in for tomorrow. ROCK COD Fil may get tight, but we have faith that our buyer, Robi, will find some more. And with NO Fresh Black Cod being landed, we’ll continue to process Fillets from thawed H&G BLACK COD.
  • Some of y’all asking about picking up your order, rather than getting a delivery to your door — Yes, that’s definitely an option that’s available to you now, because they’ve eased the restrictions to get on to Pier 45 since the Fire.
