Back by popular demand is the amazing Southeast Coonstripe shrimp! We can't keep enough shrimp in the freezer, so we're going fishing again on October 1. Be sure to place your orders well in advance as there is a very limited quantity of these beauties available and this will be the last opportunity to purchase shrimp until the spring! 

Catch 49 is excited to partner with several family-oriented, small-boat independent fishermen to offer this delicious crustacean!  

Our fishermen are Alaska residents and fish out of Haines. They are all involved in other fisheries throughout Southeast Alaska and are veterans of their trade.  

Each batch of shrimp is impeccably handled and deliver to the small community of Haines, where they are frozen and bagged by one of Southeast Alaska's oldest continually operating processing facilities, Haines Packing Company. 

Coonstripe shrimp are the second largest shrimp in Alaskan waters, typically ranging between 4 and 6 inches in total length, but up to 7 ½ inches. The distinctive darker striped markings on their abdomens help to identify them from other similar sized shrimp such as the spot shrimp (also called spot prawns), that have several larger and distinctive white spots, or the sidestripe shrimp which have white colored bands down the length of its sides. Coonstripe shrimp are harvested using small pots which is one of the most marine-friendly forms of fishing today.
