The Great American Red Snapper
Look what just jumped in off the F/V Hired Gun out of Destin, Fl?! It’s AMERICAN RED
SNAPPER!! We’re so excited to have these guys swimming in our case– American Red
Snapper is a beautiful, lean, moist fish with a semi-firm texture.
Red Snapper is among the most commonly mislabeled species on the market, and had pretty
bad overfishing incidences due to high demand. Today, the fishermen and women in the Gulf are
utilizing “catch-shares” as a method to help replenish stocks and manage overfishing so we can
enjoy Snapper well into the future.
In addition to Snapper, this week we are also featuring the fiesty Striped Mullet (thanks Mullet
Mike!), Alaskan Halibut, Coho salmon, Cape Cod Saithe, dry packed day boat Scallops, and
more! Stop in and give us a visit!
