March Seafood Update & Specials

It’s the end of winter in Ferndale and rather rainy in Honolulu. This time of year, I would rather be there than here except for the Dungeness Crab Season!

The winter weather has been rough on our crabbers. Most of the Dungeness Crab fishery is done with small boats, typically 35ft to 55ft long. Getting in or out in bad weather is a challenge, much less setting or pulling the pots in high seas. The weather in January and February was unusually stormy, limiting the fishing days. Well, if it was easy, the Crab probably would not be so tasty! The season is winding down and will end in the next 20-30 days. We hope to have enough crab in by then to get is to Mothers Day (or at Least the Final 4 Parties).

Web Update – We have consolidated our web presence into & our blog . Our old informational site, has been “retired” now that all of that information is available at If you do enter the older URL, it will automatically forward you to the right place. If you have “bookmarked” a page on other than the home page, you will get a “page not found error”.

Wild Ocean Seafoods Recipe Contest – We have recently launched our recipe contest! We want to hear how you prepare Wild Seafood! The rules are simple, there are lots of prizes, and we are planning a recipe book at the end of 2008. Don’t be afraid to enter! We are looking for recipes that can be made in a regular kitchen with normal Kitchen & BBQ utensils. There will be an eBook and print version if the interest is there. Visit our Recipe Contest Page for more information.

Cooking Tips n Tricks is a resource area for cooks to learn & share ideas that will enhance their preparation of Wild Seafood. We just started this new section on our web site devoted to cooking & preparation techniques that appear to not be widely known. (At least by most of the TV Chefs). If we publish your Cooking Tip on our Website, you will receive a $15 Wild Ocean Seafoods Gift Certificate! Our first tip is how to use a raw potato to reduce the saltiness of a dish, our second is how to cook with wasabi powder. Some other interesting tips we would like share with our customers are shortcuts that adapt cooking methods to make recipes at home taste like their restaurant counterparts, fix “mistakes”, or substitute ingredients.
