FISH STUFF & SHELLFISH STUFF &

OYSTER STUFF & MEAT STUFF



And we're back! Where've YOU been? Out celebrating World Oceans Day with us? Awesome. Seriously - super duper shout to everyone who boarded the Cascadia Cruiser and went beach sloggin' with us last weekend. Good times, good results, good things coming down the line.


All righty, since it's been a minute since we've been in your inbox, we'll cut the chit chat here, keep it simple, and get right into the FISH STUFF. Pictured above, a whole heap of Copper River Sockeye Salmon. Folks: do NOT snooze on this - it's a brief window every year, and that window's gonna close in a couple weeks.


And as a bonus, we even have King/Chinook Salmon from three different sources 'round the world this week. All that salmon leads this week's fish freshies, happening NOW:

SECTION BREAK FOR SHELLFISH


Oregon Bay Shrimp: Misnamed, but we don't care. Their other name, Pink Shrimp, may be a little more accurate what with them being pink, but it also doesn't confine them to bays, for they live in the ocean. You feel me? Whatever the case, they are a certified sustainable fishery and we treat them thusly - when they're in, we've got em. And well, they're in now, and we've got em now. Get your tiny shrimp cocktail on with the local Pink/Bay Shrimpies that lead this week's shellfish freshies.


THIS WEEK'S SHELLFISH FRESHIES

  • Bay Shrimp/Pink Shrimp - wild, Oregon
  • Shucked Oysters - sustainable farm-raised, Willapa Bay, Washington
  • Manila Clams - sustainable farm-raised, Washington
  • Mediterranean Mussels - sustainable farm-raised, Washington
  • Atlantic Scallops - wild, Massachusetts

SECTION BREAK FOR THE FLYING FISH OYSTER BAR


For this quick blast catchup, we'll keep it going and keep it simple: we'd love to see you at the Flying Fish Oyster Bar. We have nice, fresh-made dishes of poké, ceviche, smoked fish platters, and oysters, lots and lots of oysters. Currently we have eight varieties, eight species, eight flavors, eight eight eight, ah ah ah! Plus beer and wine and saké and soup and other things we can't even print here. Check the menu but use caution.


A CARNIVOROUS GRAND FINALE, or, SECTION BREAK FOR MEAT


Finally, again, we'll keep it simple and keep it meaty. The Meat Mongers share a space with Flying Fish Company, for he is I and I am him, slim with the tilted brim. What's my Meat Monger name???

INSTAGRAM JAM O' THE WEEK:


An extra special shot of love to our homie Matthew of @wilderprojects, who's been the style behind so many of our recent photos. This photo was for a different client but our fish features prominently, and we ain't mad about that. The other half of our ongoing gallery of killer pics is the woman behind the lens, Flying Fish First Lady Natalie Gildersleeve, who's got one hell of an eye working that metal-and-glass photo-makin' box. (See below.)


ABOUT US


Craig Gildersleeve opened Flying Fish Company in Sandpoint, Idaho in 1979 - the year before his son Lyf was born. Lyf, president of Flying Fish Company, has spent his entire life around fish, including an aquaculture education at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University.


Flying Fish has four locations: Sandpoint, Idaho; Durango, Colorado; Park City, Utah; and Portland, Oregon. The Portland location opened in 2009 as a food cart at the D Street pod on Division Street. In 2011, we opened the fish shack on Hawthorne Boulevard. In 2016, we joined forces with our friends at Providore Fine Foods on Sandy Boulevard, and in 2017, we moved all our operations there. One location, one family, everything you need.

Thank you for supporting our family-owned business.
