why Louisiana?

What makes seafood from Louisiana so special?

Freshwater minerals from two major rivers, the Mississippi and Atchafalaya, combine with salt water from the Gulf, creating one of the most productive natural habitats in the world. This brackish (or less salty) water quality and nutrient-rich seabed offer a unique breeding ground where our special variety of seafood species feed and hatch. It’s what makes Louisiana the place where flavor comes to life.
