The news continues to be good out of the Gulf. Our boats and other suppliers report that shrimp prices have begun to stabilize. We are still able to get oysters out of Apalachicola so that is reassuring as well. It has been an ordeal for everyone in the Gulf region and we are so thankful that the worst appears to be over. Now the focus must be on recovery for the people and the environment of this vital area.
We at the Shrimp Dock want to thank you, our customers, for your continued support during this difficult summer. One of the most effective ways for us to help rebuild the livelihoods of our suppliers in the Gulf is to continue in our mission to purchase only wild caught, fresh Gulf shrimp. We have been able to sustain this effort throughout this crisis and intend to increase our purchases every week to do our part in helping our partners in the Gulf rebuild their industry. Please join us in this effort to get the shrimpers and fishermen of the Gulf back to work so that they may restore their lives.
We hope to see you soon at the Dock!
