King Salmon Update
Did you know that a King Salmon weighing over 30lbs is often referred to as a "Tyee" (Native American for Chief) Salmon? King (Chinook) Salmon pricing is still very high due in part to a slow season start, but also due to some speculation due to the California/Southern Oregon Salmon Closure. There will be plenty of fish next month. Right now, we are maintaining minimum inventories and apologize for the price in advance. We recommend you try Wild Alaska Sockeye Salmon for your July Salmon BBQ. Our Wild Sockeye is available as 4/6oz, 7/9oz & 16oz Boneless Fillets.[TOP]

Seafood News
The Texas Shrimp Season starts today - About 200 shrimpers left Brownsville and Port Isabel on Monday for their bread and butter Texas shrimp season. Most of the boats had been fishing in Louisiana during the recent opening there. These are mostly freezer vessels, making trips of 35 to 45 days. They expect to catch around 600 to 1000 pounds of shrimp per day. The fishing starts near shore, and then most of the boats head offshore 20 or 30 miles. July and August represent the heart of the Gulf shrimp season. Expect inventories on our larger Wild Gulf Shrimp to improve in September. [TOP]
