Seafood Extravaganza

Good Friday is about the biggest day of the year for seafood eating in Louisiana, especially for Catholics in New Orleans.  Supply is looking good but better bring some extra cash to your favorite fish market. That's according to Harlon Pearce, chairman of the Gulf Seafood Institute.

''The shrimp and crawfish are going to be high,'' said Pearce.

Pearce says if you compare fish to beef prices now, you really shouldn't worry too much and he says consider the quality.

''Most people do that, they'll get the crawfish and take it home, get the crabs and take it home, you can expect everyone to eat the great Louisiana seafood that we have,'' he said.

Pearce says not only will shrimp and crawfish be expensive, but oysters remain expensive, as they have been ever since the BP oil spill.
