Spot Prawns & Rockfish on the Menu for Our Spring Catch of the Season!

Date Posted: April 16, 2016       Categories: AMCC Blog       Tags: Catch of the Season, Local Seafood

Spring is here and we have been working to line up some new local seafood options for you all. Feedback from customers like you helps us know what you are hungry for. Time and time again, one crustacean continues to emerge through our surveys: spot prawns!

spot prawns_1The harvest season for pot-caught spot prawns in Prince William Sound is extremely limited and opens this Friday, April 15th. AMCC is working with a number of fishermen to try and secure a supply of these tasty critters for our customers. Due to the uncertainty in what will be caught and pricing (market demand will be high!), we are going to wait until we have some supply on hand to make them available.

Our goal is to offer 5 lb. shares of frozen, head-off spot prawns to our customers in the Anchorage area. During this pilot we are unfortunately going to have limited on supply and will not be able to deliver seafood to Fairbanks and outlying areas.

Along with spot prawns, we are going to again offer delicious Kodiak jig-caught rockfish harvested this spring and some overstock of jumbo packs of jig-caught cod. Hungry, yet? We are too!

Stay tuned for news and updates as the season and ordering period gets underway. Thank you so much again for your continued support for the Alaska Marine Conservation Council and Catch of the Season!
