Hurricanes Affecting Local Seafood Prices

A popular Tri-State seafood restaurant left without many fish in the sea after hurricanes threaten their seafood supply.

Tin Fish in Newburgh says Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have rocked the boat when it comes to getting their orders in. The resturant has raised prices of those fish most effected by 10% to 15%.

Owner Morgan Castillo says increased prices aren't the only concern, as some of the most in demand fish may be in danger of being temporarily taken off the menu.

"When it's something big, and it could definitely happen but hasn't happened yet," said Castillo, "because the country hasn't gone through all of their resources. And if it hasn't happened yet, but it could be shrimp, it could be oysters, it could be snapper, it could be a lot of things out of that gulf."

Castillo expects the low quantity of fish and high prices to stick around for at least six months.
