Mardi Gras Season Means crawfish, blue crab & oysters   

Winter time in this region means milder weather, Mardi Gras, and of course some of the best Louisiana seafood the gulf has to offer!  Eating local seafood in season means you’ll enjoy it at the peak of freshness.

Louisiana is the largest commercial fishery in the contiguous United States. If you’re lucky enough to live in Louisiana, you’re in close proximity to seasonal gulf fish like black drum and yellowfin tuna, as well as the best oysters and shrimp in the world.

Fish is an appetite suppressant, health benefits of crawfish & other good news

Supporting a Sustainable Louisiana Seafood Industry

Posted by Lindsay Adler on Mar 10 2016

What is a culture of sustainability and why is it so important to support a sustainable U.S. seafood industry?  A recent TEDx talk describes sustainability as “making deliberate decisions to prevent further breaking of our oceans' boundaries.”

Six years and millions of dollars later, the Louisiana Seafood Board is still working to do just that.
