Alaskan Shrimp Season and Weekend Specialties 10.5.17 October 04 2017 Posted in

We’ve got exciting product news to share!  This weekend we’re getting the first shipment of the Alaska shrimp season.  We’ll have fresh coonstripe shrimp and spot prawns caught by the Mikkelsens, a father and son team, fishing out of the Prince William Sound. Not only are both of these shrimp super sweet and tasty, they’re also well regulated by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to ensure sustainable population stocks.  The season is typically very short, no more than two weeks.  Once the harvest levels have been reached, the season shuts down.  Come on by for a rare treat!
