Consumers guaranteed Louisiana gulf-caught, landed and processed seafood with Certification Seal

First Packaged Louisiana Certified Seafood Product Unveiled

  (UNITED STATES, 5/15/2013)

Representatives with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board (LSPMB) and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) joined Louisiana seafood industry leaders to announce the Vermilion Bay Sweet White Shrimp Gumbo Pack, from supplier Delcambre Direct Seafood, as one of the first products to carry the "Certified Authentic Louisiana Wild Seafood" seal on the packaging.

Like other processors in the state of Louisiana, Gulf Crown relies on the a number of H2B workers to help process the Louisiana Vermilion Bay white shrimp

"Vermilion Bay Sweet Shrimp Gumbo Packs are processed, packaged, and distributed by Gulf Crown Seafood in a cooperative effort with The Port of Delcambre and Delcambre Direct Seafood," said Thomas Hymel , Project Manager of Louisiana Direct Seafood. "This Louisiana Certified Seafood product is sustainable, traceable, contains no sodium tripolyphosphate, and meets an ever-increasing demand for fresh, quality gumbo-sized shrimp."

“We have tried to stay on the technological edge. We knew we had to be ahead of the game to allow us to play internationally, at all levels", said Gulf Crown owner Jeff Floyd

The voluntary Louisiana Seafood Certification Program guarantees that all Louisiana seafood bearing the "Certified Authentic Louisiana Wild Seafood" label is caught in the Gulf of Mexico or Gulf Coast state waters by Louisiana licensed fishermen and is landed, processed, and packaged in Louisiana.

Individual Quick Frozen (IQF) line

"Participation is open to all fishermen, docks, dealers, processors, and retailers who meet the program requirements," said Randy Pausina , Assistant Secretary of LDWF. "Our department, working with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, will make certain that participants adhere to the guidelines and maintain the standards of the 'Certified Authentic Louisiana Wild Seafood' program."

The Louisiana Seafood Certification Program strives to increase the confidence of consumers, retailers and restaurateurs, allow for the easy recognition of Louisiana seafood in the market, and ensure that Louisiana's seafood industry is able to compete and endure in the constantly changing global marketplace.

"Consumers want to know where their seafood comes from and when they see the certification label, they know they are getting the very finest, freshest, and best-tasting wild-caught seafood in the world," said Ewell Smith , Executive Director of LSPMB.

Gulf Crown packages Louisiana, as well as other Gulf caught shrimp

"The Vermilion Bay Sweet brand is currently available locally in grocery stores and online via CajunGrocer.com, the first online retailer to carry the product," Smith said. "Consumers should ask their local grocers to carry the product as it continues to be rolled out to retailers locally, regionally and ultimately, nationally."

About the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board

The LSPMB was created in 1984 by the state of Louisiana to support their vast historical commercial fisheries industry. The Board is composed of 15 members and each member represents a sector of the industry: harvesters, processors, wholesalers, restaurateurs/retailers, fisheries resource managers, public health officers and marketing specialists.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana's abundant resources.
