This doesn't matter; no one is allowed to advertise without being a sponsor. RS needs to make the money to keep this site free for everyone and if people are allowed to make money off this site for free what's going to be the incentive to have sponsors sign up?

but I think he got banned from RS for selling prawns lol....
I contacted him a year or two ago and he said he was out of the seafood business.

It's a tough business being a wholesaler/distributor many open up and close down within 6months you really need to have deep pockets to purchase the seafood that's not even half the battle. You compete with other wholesaler to gain suppliers of live seafood. Then after that you need a reliable purchaser out of country that's trustworthy. Wholesalers that are still around are millionaires now if they started early in the 80s .

Not spot prawns but related, I heard on the radio this morning that Dungeness Crab is at an all-time high price right now (more expensive than lobster!) because they are all being shipped off to China

I don't think I've ever bought crabs for at least 5 years. I've been recreationally catching them for a long ass time. If you have access to a boat, it becomes very easy to catch crabs. Lots of times my group limits out in an hour.

Yeah this year is different that's for sure I am a crab fisherman and volume is low this year that's why so expensive. Crabs are down in Oregon rn. They migrate every few years.

Not sure if it is the same type of prawn we are talking about but my sister went to granville island on Sat and got some prawn. They were huge! Anyways her bf knows a few guys who sold them (they sold them in their boat a few mins walk from granville island). Taste really guy according to the fishermen these prawns is only in the season for a few weeks.
