We went to Fisherman's Market in New Bedford (our new fav fish market) the other day. They had beautiful bft and yft for sale, $8.49lb. Opted for the bft.  Had it the other night seared and chilled, with a spring greens salad with fresh strawberries and sliced almonds and some nice pinot noir. :drool:

Great market, Bob G!   

 

My fave as well.

 

Their scallops are excellent, and inexpensive as well.

The tuna stocks are extensively managed and well kept. I can at least speak for the U.S. fish stock and say its healthy. What other nations do to their stock is their doing. It's not because the market Is flooded it's the meat quality is garbage. These fish just swam up from the gulf of Mexico and the Mediterranean to here to feed. After that long journey they are very lean and deprived. This is why they are not worth anything right now. Tuna is a lot better managed than striped bass rn and I would honestly say tuna is a success story. It came back from a potential collapse and had been on the up and up

This is absolutely correct.

I would like to add a few things to this discussion.

I have seen on many occasions this year very poor fish handling of such a great fish.Not being bled,sitting on a deck of a boat in 90 degrees baking for hours before truck arrives,no blanket,no ice.These people know better,they are just lazy.

these poorly taken care of fish people are much of the problem.

Tuna are being farmed now,perfect sized,perfect fat content,perfect everything.there is no need for our fish.

This total BS show wicked tuna has ruined things as well.Everyone now wants to become "rich" and a "star".

Yes, worth the trip.

They closed their retail business a few years ago, and reopened maybe 2,,3?years ago.

 I was in withdrawals!

  Scallop crumbs are also available,,,chunks too.

One in town here the other day sat in 76° water all day waiting for a buyer.

Another sat on the deck of a boat in the sun for hours with zero ice (and there is an ice house on the pier with a hose to blow unlimited amounts onto your boat.)
