Anna Marie Seafood
- Montegut, Louisiana, United States (US)
BiographyAnna Marie Shrimp owner and shrimper Lance Nacio grew up in Lafourche Parish, about an hour outside New Orleans. An innovator at heart, Lance took advantage of low-cost loans following the 2005 hurricanes to take a risk and invest in on-board freezers. The equipment, which freezes seafood almost instantly on large aluminum plates, had long been used in the big commercial fisheries in Alaska and Canada. Other investments in the F/V Anna Marie included wider mesh nets and modified turtle excluder devices; meeting their commitment to environmentally responsible fishing methods.
This waterless, flash-freeze process allows Anna Marie Shrimp to provide "capture quality" shrimp to our customers, and meets the high quality standards of Louisiana Limited Wild Plate Frozen Shrimp. Anna Marie has now expanded into a wide variety of finfish; namely red snapper, grouper, yellowfin tuna and tilefish. All Certified Authentic Louisiana Wild Caught.
