Louisiana Seafood: Best of the Bayou
At Hy-Vee, we’re picky about our seafood. In fact, we're one of the only retailers in the nation with our own USDC Lot Inspector. That means we turn away a lot of seafood when it doesn’t meet our standards. We inspect thoroughly because in our world "good enough" is not good enough. Now, that may make us seafood snobs, but it also makes sure you’re getting the best seafood around.
The Louisiana Gulf: Where flavor comes alive
They call it the "Louisiana difference." It’s the firm texture and natural sweetness you get from seafood that originates in one of the most nutrient-rich habitats in the world. Freshwater minerals from two major rivers combine with saltwater from the Gulf to create a briny playground where the shrimp is sweeter.
Seafood is a vital part of the culture for folks in Louisiana. But fishing captains, chefs and shoppers alike know that you preserve tradition by preserving the environment. When you purchase Louisiana seafood from Hy-Vee, you are assured that it meets 10 national standards for conservation and aquatic habitat management. And Louisiana seafood is among the industry's most thoroughly and intensely inspected, so you're guaranteed it meets the highest standards for quality and taste. Hy-Vee — wouldn't have it any other way.
