philosophy of "Customer First." Customer satisfaction is the core of our business.

Shellfish Tag and Label Requirements
Shellfish tags are required by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. The tags must follow the shellfish from the time of harvest until either the container they are in is empty or it is retagged. The tag must also be kept on file for 90 days. All the information on the tags is required to help assure public safety. For specific guidelines, please click on the link below.
