The latest from Gemini Fish

I JUST WANT TO DO ONE OF MY REGULAR OLD WEEKLY EMAILS WHERE I JOKE A BIT
AND RANT ABOUT THE COOL FISH WE HAVE COMING.
APPARENTLY WE'RE A WAYS AWAY FROM THAT, BUT HOPEFULLY NOT TOO FAR.
HOPE EVERYONE IS STAYING HEALTHY & THANKS TO EVERYBODY FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

IF YOU'VE BEEN TO GEMINI IN THE LAST WEEK OR 2,
YOU'VE NOTICED THAT THERE'S SOME NEW HOURS & SOME NEW PROTOCOL.
STILL OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK, BUT WE'VE LIMITED OUR HOURS
9AM-5:30 PM MONDAY-SATURDAY & 10AM-5PM SUNDAY
*WE'RE ONLY ALLOWING 5 CUSTOMERS IN THE SHOP AT A TIME AND WE ASK THAT EVERYBODY RESPECTS THE SPACE OF OTHER CUSTOMERS AND OUR CREW.
*6 FEET FOR SAFETY WHICH CAN BE TOUGH IN OUR SMALL SHOP BUT IT IS VERY DOABLE IF EVERYBODY PAYS ATTENTION.
*THERE'S NO MORE SELF-SERVICE ON THE ICE TABLES OR HOT SOUPS. PLEASE ASK FOR ASSISTANCE AND WE'LL GET YOU WHAT YOU NEED.
*WE ASK AT THE REGISTER THAT YOU STAY BEHIND THE FISH LINE ON THE FLOOR (YOU'LL SEE IT) AND WHEN IT COMES TIME TO PAY, HAND YOUR CARD TO US (WE'RE GLOVED UP) AND WE'LL TAKE CARE OF IT.

*PLEASE DON'T BRING YOUR OWN BAGS OR COOLERS INTO THE SHOP FOR THE TIME BEING.

*WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING THE FOOD TRUCK, BUT THAT COULD CHANGE VERY SOON.
WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING AN ONLINE ORDER AHEAD SYSTEM FOR TAKE OUT MEALS
SO KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THAT.
AS SOON AS WE GET IT ALL DIALED IN, WE'LL OPEN A COUPLE DAYS A WEEK AT THE SHOP AND THERE'S A COUPLE LOCAL NEIGHBORHOODS THAT ARE HOSTING FOOD TRUCKS THAT WE MAY VENTURE OUT TO.
STILL TRYING TO KEEP LIMITED EXPOSURE TO OUR CREW AND WE'RE TRYING NOT TO TAKE SPOTS AWAY FROM TRUCKS THAT RELY SOLELY ON THAT BUSINESS FOR THEIR INCOME IF THAT MAKES SENSE.

CURBSIDE PICK UPS ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY POPULAR AND WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO DO IT!
GIVE US A CALL 425 961 0741, GIVE US YOUR ORDER AND A CARD #, AND WE'LL FILL YOUR ORDER.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE FOR PICK UP, GIVE US A QUICK CALL AND WE'LL BRING THE ORDER OUT TO A CART ON THE EAST SIDEWALK OF OUR SHOP. YOU CAN THEN PICK IT UP WITHOUT GETTING NEAR ANY OF US !
YOU CAN ALWAYS WAVE AT US THROUGH THE WINDOW AND WE'LL WAVE BACK!

ON TO THE FISHES...

SO WE ARE BEGINNING TO SEE A LITTLE IMPACT ON THE SUPPLY CHAIN FROM ALL THESE SHENANIGANS.
THERE ARE SEVERAL FACTORS INVOLVED...WITH RESTAURANTS NOT BUYING, MANY DISTRIBUTORS HAVE LIMITED THE VARIETY OF WHAT THEY ARE BUYING. WITH DEMAND DOWN (RESTAURANTS, EXPORTS), BOAT PRICES ARE DOWN AND WE'RE STARTING TO SEE THAT MANY FISHERMAN ARE CHOOSING NOT TO FISH IF THEY CAN'T GET THE PRICE. THIS IS MAINLY IN FISHERIES THAT ARE QUOTA BASED WITH LONG SEASONS...
HALIBUT & WHOLE COOKED DUNGENESS CRAB ARE TWO THAT HAVE BEEN IMPACTED OUT OF THE GATE.

ALL THAT BEING SAID, WE ARE STILL GETTING KILLER FRESH FISH DELIVERED DAILY AND WE HAVE GOT A GREAT LINE UP FOR THE WEEKEND.

WE DO HAVE A LIMITED QUANTITY OF FRESH COOKED DUNGENESS CRAB COMING TOMORROW!
THEY WON'T BE HUGE BUT THEY'LL BE NICE AND FULL!
$10.99LB (GOOD PRICE!).
limited quantiy so get your name on them if you need them!
HOPING FOR MORE BIG BOY BFCs ON SUNDAY!
