Fish Tails 05/25/21: 1-yr Anniversary … Aloha Seafood

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Looking for a show of hands if you had an order in for last year’s Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. I know there’s a bunch of you, because it would’ve been our busiest day since the onset of quarantining. As a reminder, you didn’t get your delivery that day because Pier 45 was Up in Flames. The Fire has since been extinguished, so if you need some fishys this Saturday (let’s include Friday too), AND if you had an order placed for a year ago, then let us know, and we will WAIVE your Delivery Fee. (cheaters Will Be Caught and Prosecuted — we have saved every work-order from that day). And because of Memorial Day, Aloha Seafood Will Be CLOSED on Monday, May 31st.
  • Note that Farm’d Atlantic SALMON prices have soared recently, and another bump expected soon. Reason is production problems in Chile due to warm water and algae blooms, (it happens a lot down there), meaning that Canada has to fill the void for huge customers such as China and Walmart, creating a shortage for us lowly customers, so the price goes up. But it also narrows the gap btwn those and our “PREMIUM” Salmons, such as ‘LOCH DUART’ & ‘ORA-KING’ & ‘BIG GLORY BAY’ KINGs.
  • And DUNGENESS CRABMEAT is pretty popular with y’all — Price Up on that one too.
  • A few lbs of FRESH COOKED OR SHRIMPMT came in, and we’re hoping for more.  FRESH Monterey SQUIDLocal (Monterey, Half-Moon Bay) WILD KING SALMON.  And a lot more of da’ stuff that you’ve come to know & love … some re-‘Tail’ below, and Prices attached …
  • Still trying to navigate all this upheaval in our industry around availability and costs. As mentioned, you home-delivery folks still get a great deal compared to regular retail pricing, but this upheaval is a pretty big deal to the food-service sector.
  • Now offering a line of eight of Bristol’s “MY FISH DISH”, a 7-oz thaw, bake, & enjoy seafood entree — GARLIC/HERB/BUTTER SHRIMP & SWEET CHILI-SAUCE SHRIMPBlackened-&-Smoked Butter SCALLOPS or ATLANTIC COD or WILD SOCKEYE SALMON; and Sesame-&-Seaweed Teriyaki on the same three fish. Seems perfect for all of you HDS customers. Give ’em a try!
  • “Del Pacifico” Suripera Blue Prawns are absolutely da’ Best Prawn/Shrimp that can be found. Currently, Disney Corp is their top customer … let’s see if we can join that Mickey-Mouse outfit at the top of the list!
  • Some faves from da’ freezer —  HAMACHI COLLARS / KAMA (2+ lbs per pkg); HAMACHI FILLET (about 5-lbs ea); CHILEAN C-BASS COLLARS … SPANISH OCTOPUS; FZN Cooked/Blanched OCTOPUS TENTACLES (TAKO) about 3# ea, from Hokkaido/Japan, a ‘Hot Special’ at $7.50 … AHI POKE CUBES; SALMON POKE CUBES; FZN ALBACORE LOINS; Sk-Off/BLO FZN AHI LOINS … IQF SMELT; IQF SARDINES; PERUVIAN BAY SCALLOPSOYSTER SPRING-ROLLS; Lots More …

  • Aloha y’all — still trying to navigate all this upheaval in our industry around availability and costs. As mentioned, you home-delivery folks still get a great deal compared to regular retail pricing, but this upheaval is a pretty big deal to the food-service sector. Anyway, hope y’all had a good Mother’s Day — the next one coming is Memorial Day weekend, always a pretty big day for us. As a matter of fact, last year’s Memorial Day could have been remembered as our busiest day since pre- shelter-in-place days … but then the Pier 45 Fire happened, giving us something different to remember.
  • Along with our usual decent selection from Baja/Mexico, (YELLOWTAIL JACK, CORVINA BASS, STRIPED BASS, SoCAL HALIBUT, & ‘Del Pacifico’ PRAWNS), we’ve got some Mex’n KAMPACHI due in this week!!
  • And a nice selection of fishies from Local waters and other global locales … check out the Product/Price List, and a bit of re’Tail’ below … GO DUBS, GO GIANTS!

Fish Tails Post 5/6/21: Fishes for Mom … Aloha

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Hi y’all, still a coupla’ days to get some goodies from the sea for Mother’s Day!
  • Two items jump out — FRESH NEW LOCAL WILD CA KING SALMON (from Monterey/Half Moon Bay). Just arrived, beauts, I think these fellas were swimming yesterday. Please don’t ask us to PBO, as that process makes for a lousy presentation on Wild Salmon.  And FRESH COOKED OREGON SHRIMPMEAT, first of the season, rated Green by MBAq SeaWatch, we prefer to sell it by the 5-lb tub, (though it may weigh only 4.75 lbs because this item gets nibbled on by us more than any other item). Buy a tub, portion & freeze for later.
  • We almost had some Uni last week for y’all, but we rejected it due to quality, and this week is too windy, but methinks we’re getting closer to some regularity. Stay tuned.
  • Hey, I mentioned that we have a customer who presented their business on ‘Shark Tank’. They Got an Investment!! Check out the April 16th episode, company’s name is Truffle Shuffle.
  • This new world order has got the Seafood industry in turmoil of the likes that I’ve never ever seen before. Limited availability, global shipping issues, gas, etc. have got everything going up in price. Maybe not such a big deal for you guys compared to the restaurant & hotel & catering businesses, because our prices to you are still well below typical retail prices when you compare apples-to-apples. Nevertheless, things have changed. Heck, it wouldn’t be surprising if I was told that the SF Giants have the best record in the NL after 30 games, but that may be a bit far-fetched, huh?
  • Don’t forget to call Mom, and if she’s in a faraway place with poor phone reception, then send out some sweet vibes.
  • Reminder 1) It’s OK to include the eMail addresses that have one of our names in it, BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ALWAYS INCLUDE orders@alohaseafood.net when eMailing/replying with us.
