Your Guide to What’s in Season!

Enjoying Louisiana Seafood at its peak 

No matter what time of year, Louisiana Seafood is always in season! From the health benefits of seafood, to the easy accessibility of seafood recipes, to its versality in dishes, you can always find a reason to eat more seafood. Eating local means you’ll enjoy seafood at the peak of freshness. So why is it better to eat what’s in season?

Eating seafood in season means you’re supporting the sustainable seafood industry. Louisiana is the largest commercial fishery in the contiguous United States. The Gulf Coast produces 70% of the nation’s oysters, and 69% of domestic shrimp. The domestic seafood industry uses responsible practices and is held to stricter ethical standards than foreign seafood, and the shipping distance is much less. Avoid imported seafood to leave a smaller footprint and enjoy a better product.

Fish and shellfish can stand alone as an entrée, or be used as an ingredient in soups, salads, pasta dishes, rice dishes, or vegetable sides. Whether you’d prefer to boil or broil, barbeque or fry, you can do it with whatever seafood is in season!
