Shrimp supplies are steady. The Winter holiday demand will cause the market to rise on larger- sized shrimp. Retail markets are making their holiday buy-ins now. Lobster tails: the Carribean's (warm water tails) season is now closed. The Canadian (cold water tails) harvesting season is also over. Currently, both types of tails are in stock; supplies are good and the market is steady. Holiday foodservice demand will cause the markets to rise starting in December.
