Native to Alaska, sidestripe shrimp are second only to prawns in terms of size, reaching up to 21 cm (8 inches) in length. They have distinctive long antennules and stripes along their abdomen after which they are named. These hard-to-find shrimp are known for being distinctively sweet and tender and cook in only 30 seconds or can also be eaten raw. Triad Fisheries uses a beam trawl to catch these shrimp and is careful to release all by-catch back into the ocean. The shrimp are flash frozen at sea to ensure optimum freshness. All our seafood selections are evaluated based location and catch or aquaculture method as a recommended by the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch. Catch Method: Beam Trawl Frozen at Sea
Triad Fisheries is a family-owned hook-and-line fishery off the coast of SE Alaska with a dedication to transparency and sustainability. Triad fish are caught using a slow hook-and-line method to minimize stress, processed immediately on-board, and frozen within 90 minutes. This fishery in SE Alaska has the lowest carbon footprint of any Alaska Fishery, since the boats don't run back and forth from town daily and they fish at a very slow speed. Because the fish are processed immediately after catch, the safety and quality is unsurpassed.
