This Weekend's Catch for 10/02/09 - 10/04/09

Happy October!

It's the month of chilly (but enjoyable) days, dewy mornings, nippy nights, colorfully littered lawns, pumpkins, pies tricks, treats and...SEAFOOD!?!? That's right! The Fall season is one of the best times to buy fresh seafood, when everything is both big and beautiful. Also, it might be a good idea to start stocking up for our OFF SEASON, which begins right before Christmas and lasts until April! You'll thank us when it's the middle of February, and you're hankering for some scallops! : )

Here is a listing of all we have to offer at Jumbo Seafood for the weekend 10/02/09 - 10/04/09. ALL of our seafood is FRESH,WILD-CAUGHT, and NOT IMPORTED:

  4. 31-35 ct. Tails (North Carolina)
  5. 16-20 ct. Head-On (North Carolina)
  • The numbers before the shrimp indicate the average number of shrimp that come in one pound. For instance, in the 16-20 ct. ("count") shrimp, there are 16 - 20 shrimp in a single pound.
  • The locations of where the shrimp were caught are listed in parentheses.
  • We sell shrimp both WITH and WITHOUT the heads. "Head-On" refers to the shrimp with the heads. "Tails" refers to the shrimp without the heads. Generally speaking, the shrimpwithout heads are more expensive.
