Market Report

17-02-2015

The change of seasons is creating some interesting weather patterns around the country and in the Tasman. This is disrupting supply of Blue Eye, John Dory and Bass from New Zealand. No one in Queensland is brave enough to go Spanner crabbing meaning fresh meat this week will be tight. Flathead has pretty much disappeared and is getting record prices at market but we still expect it to come back just as quickly as it vanished. The annual prawn season has got off to a terrible start with many boats coming back to port at only 40% capacity with most of that 40% being small prawn. Larger sized prawns like the U/10, U/8 and U/6 are almost not existent. The Mt Cook Saikou Salmon is now a stock item here at Clamms and is available for purchase all the time. It's rumoured that if your particularly nice to Josh Roydhouse our sales manager he may even have some samples of Saikou available, you can usually catch Josh on josh@clamms.com.au

Small local fish has been really good and is coming in fairly regularly, think Red mullet, school whiting, tommy rough, jack mackerel and duck fish all available today. Wild Barramundi is starting to appear at the market the quality is pretty good but the price is still a little high, if you're interested please give Clamms a call and we can arrange whatever you require.
