The Alaskan Spot prawn has a sweet and buttery flavor and firm yet tender texture. This combination of taste and texture make this prawn the best in the world, in our opinion. They are wild and sustainable; and, Spot prawn populations are at healthy levels because of the limited harvest, gear restrictions, license limits, and onboard monitoring of vessels. The fishery is responsibly managed and the catch ecosystems are supporting sustainable healthy harvests.
