Fabian Seafood is a small family business based in Galveston, Texas, which started in 1975, selling our fresh shrimp throughout most of Texas and Oklahoma from the back of pick-up trucks. Back then, we would buy the shrimp from the boats, ice them down, and drive overnight several hundred miles or more inland to sell them the very next day. Of course, lots of customers were skeptical, especially about buying from a truck in a parking lot. But after they tried our fresh shrimp and told their friends, our business grew. We started carrying other seafood products, but fresh shrimp is still our main product.
Since 1977, we have transported our fresh shrimp and other fresh seafood in refrigerated trucks and, later also by air cargo, and have sold throughout the Midwest and Plains States direct to the consumer. Our selling areas include most of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Oklahoma, and some parts of Illinois, Indiana, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Texas. We are fully licensed and inspected and take great care in ensuring that the seafood we sell is the freshest available.
The Shrimp Season generally lasts from April into November and we are closed the rest of the year (if you try to contact us then, you may not get a reply until Spring). We also bring up Fresh Shucked Oysters in the Spring and again in the Fall. Fresh Blue Crabmeat is available starting in May. Crawfish are in season from April into June. Red Snapper is available usually in the Spring and again in the Fall, and Flounder start coming in once we get a few cold fronts in October.
