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).
Artisanal vessels use wind sails and deploy hand nets to catch small volumes of wild Mexican blue shrimp. Eight fisher coops have collectively organized to certify this product as Fair Trade, which guarantees a 5-10% premium is paid back to the harvest level. Fully peeled and deveined, zero chemicals. Product has been frozen only once or twice as small harvest batches are combined to be processed. Shrimp are sized 26-30/lb, and will be about 22-24 shrimp per 12oz pack.
Queen of the Crab, harvested in Bering Sea crab pots during the winter, processed in Alaska and frozen once for Alaska Select Seafoods. ~7-8 clusters per case.
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!
