Bad news, little good news on shrimp season

The bad news is a HUGE reduction in TAC (total allowable catch) for the 2013 shrimp season starting Jan 22, 2013. The other bad news is the only allowable fishing days, Mondays and Wednesdays (however long it takes to fill 85% of the TAC, which will not take too long). Local markets and off-the-boat demand are mostly Friday and Saturdays making it very challenging for many customers. The good news is that there is even a season! So make your plans accordingly if you want to fill your freezer :)
