Crustacean Update!

Author: Erika Eckley

Date: November 2, 2018



We will be taking a small internal increase on shrimp.  All brands except Harvest of the Sea are affected.  We did this to stay competitive on that line, as it is already one of the more expensive imported shrimps.

Lobster Tails:

We’ll begin to see slight increases in pricing the closer we get to the Holiday’s.  We will begin building inventory in the next two weeks, but if you are looking for large buys, please let us know!

(Whole) Red King Crab Legs:

Supply is very tight.  Smaller sizes have been nearly impossible to get since June, thus causing everybody to switch to larger sizes.  Now larger sizes are tightening up.

Holiday prices are going to be expensive!!


Larger scallop prices are firming up for the Holiday’s.  Supply shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

Snow Crab

Our demand for snow crab is minuscule, we’re keeping inventory low so our price should stay consistent with the market.

Frog Legs

Keeping inventory low on these as demand is not near where it used to be.  We’re going to continue to see high prices, especially with the tariff.
