Pearly white tender little morsels! Harvested, shucked, and frozen on board vessels within 4 hours. I repeat, 4 hours. Scallop dredging in Alaska is highly regulated and each vessel carries a biologist to help report true catch activity, so stock status and any bycatch is strictly monitored in real-time by the State. Brought down to us by the good folks at Lummi Island Wild Co-op from Alaska Weathervane Seafoods in 1.25lb bags, or 35-50 scallops per bag. And as always, no chemicals added - a true 'dry-pack', is the industry term (and what to always ask for in a restaurant or grocery store).
Caught in Southeast Alaska with shrimp pots, de-headed, and individually frozen at sea with the shell still on. That's it. Bonus: spot prawns don't need to be deveined! Comes in an Alaska Select 5 lb box with a plastic liner, frozen individuals are easy to divide into smaller portions for later or giving away. Note the product is an "ocean-run", meaning they have not been sorted for size. You'll get a variety of sizes and some will be smaller and some will be larger. Nature!
Kombu, or Sugar Kelp, is slightly sweet and full of umami. Tired of dried, hella-salty kelp being our only sea veggie options, these innovative farmers in Kodiak Alaska blanch and freeze at the source into vibrant green little blocks - think frozen spinach. The blanching, freezing, and thawing process actually works to retain texture, as kelp naturally freeze and thaw multiple times in icy ocean water cycles. Product contains no additives or enhancers, and comes in 1lb plastic bricks. Merely flirting with the idea of incorporating more seaweed into your diet? No worries - product keeps up to 3 years in the freezer.
Artisanal wooden vessels conduct day or overnight trips to handline yellowfin tuna and deliver product into a Dutch company's supply chain. Several small villages traditionally landing yellowfin collectively organized to certify this fishery as the first Fair Trade certified seafood, creating a grassroots-sustained Indonesian NGO and guaranteeing a 5-10% premium is paid directly to the fishermen in the process. Each steak is 5oz.
