Shedders are finally here! New England’s infamous weather patterns coupled with the Gulf of Maine’s colder-than-average water temperatures this spring have worked in tandem to both prolong the shed and temporarily limit the production of Maine’s fishery.
The good news? Summer is finally in full swing and we are out of the doldrums. The Maine supply right now is still very tight but within a matter of days, barring any natural disasters or weather systems, production is going to take off and softshells will become widely available.
We are just starting to bring them in here and will begin retailing them at $4.99/lb. Come get some!
