In supermarkets nationwide, there’s always some sort of seafood available. So, the average consumer might not realize that seafood has seasons, just like produce does.
In Louisiana, we have a handful of options that are available and delicious year-round, but each of our major species has its own sweet spot. You’ll understand when you try freshly boiled crawfish in early April, or when you taste a Louisiana shrimp in August—there’s just nothing like our seafood when it’s in season.
We’ve broken down what you need to know about each Louisiana Seafood species, so all you need to do is mark your calendars and be ready for the feast ahead.
