Copper River sockeyes are still going strong, but the fishery off the river in Alaska will probably close soon. Now we will start to see wild king salmon prices start to drop. Also, coho, or "silver," salmon catches have started, but the fish are still on the small side.
Fresh, whole-cooked Dungeness crabs are now available. Recreational crab season is open, if you need crab bait, call ahead to reserve some. There are some really nice specialty fish available, such as onaga, swordfish, ahi-tuna, opah, ono, white sea bass from California and amberjack.
So get your grills going, summer is finally here!!!
