Referred to as the "lobster of Alaska," Wild Alaskan Spot Prawns are a delicacy from the brisk waters of the Gulf of Alaska. These Spot Prawns carry a subtle sweetness & robust bite in their hearty meatiness.

Your prawns are caught by our friend Chris Hanson and Sitka Salmon Shares, partners committed to sustainable fishing practices and community wellness.  

 

The shrimping industry is known as one of the most destructive fisheries, with large quantities of bycatch, pollution, and loss of habitat.

Wild Alaskan and West Coast shrimping operations shine as an exception to this tendency, as their shrimping operations are primarily community-based, with a great deal of local fisher involvement in management, strict regulation, and long-term sustainability as an important pre-requisite!  (ADFG, Spot Shrimp)
