Feature of the Week

 

LUMP CRAB MEAT
Often considered the most versatile grade for the widest range of recipes, lump-grade crab meat consists of the smaller pieces of white meat from the body of the crab. Perfect for crab cakes, salads, quesadillas, wraps, soups, and crab balls.
 
METROPOLITAN offers a vast selection of local, regional, and international fresh fish and shellfish. Our seafood specialists have developed trusted relationships with top seafood suppliers worldwide.
 
Let METROPOLITAN be your standard source for quality lump crab meat week in - week out. Always fresh, always available, always delicious.
   
Seafood Market Update    (updated 7/19/2017)
    
SALMON- The big Chilean drop starts next week and it looks like prices could continue to drop. The rest of the salmon world has stopped trying to compete with the Chileans so those markets remain stable for now. The Canadian market actually went up a little for next week.
 
TUNA- All shapes, sizes and grades. Prices are down everywhere due to a major glut worldwide. Albacore and small Yellowfins are still being caught from North Carolina to Massachusetts and are offering great deals for the weekend. The higher grade fish will be down for next week.
 
SWORDFISH- Prices are down again but there is a lot of junk on the market so let the buyer beware this week. Everyone is backed up right now and prices have dropped daily. We are offering 70-99# fish that just arrived today from Costa Rica at very competitive prices and the quality is top-notch.
 
HALIBUT- It was a roller coaster ride this week on prices but with our direct connection from the docks in Canada we are offering great deals on fillets from 10-50# fish that are arriving tonight.
 
WILD SOCKEYE- The market has seemed to level off this week and our fish are still coming out of the Kodiak area.
 
MAKO SHARK- This is one of the best runs we have seen in years and the supply has been steady. Prices are up slightly but still a great value.
 
MAHI MAHI- We have seen record prices this week. Still very limited production.
 
LOBSTERS- There are some “firm shell” lobsters starting to show up but remember you get what you pay for. We are handling only hard shell lobsters here at Metropolitan and the market remains stable this week.
 
CRABMEAT- Venezuela production is drying up fast. Prices are up on jumbo and lump. Still decent domestic production for now, so we will see how they react when Venezuela goes into their conservation period.
 
ROCKFISH- Same story as last week. Very little local production from the hook-and-liners so most of our fish are coming out of Massachusetts and prices are high.
