National Fisherman

The Lenten season has Louisiana folks clamoring for home-grown seafood.
 
Some supplies are a little tight right now, and prices may put a pinch on the wallet.
 
Harlon Pearce, with the Gulf Seafood Institute says our cold winter weather may make it hard to find fresh crabs and crawfish.
 
"Old Man Winter has been pretty rough on us this whole year," says Pearce. "So that reflects on some of the production we have on some of our better products."
 
He says the supply of oysters is a bit tight too, as the industry continues to recover from the BP Oil spill. But, he says the quality is excellent.
 
"The oysters we do have are really gorgeous. I mean they're really beautiful, they're fat."
