Bimini Boatyard Sold How Much Seafood at the Boat Show?



We hear that Bimini Boatyard had its best sales days ever during last week's International Boat Show.

The numbers are in, and they are ridiculous. 


According to chef Michael Bennett, a literal ton of seafood went through the kitchen and out on the plates. Check the breakdown:

Atlantic Mahi-Mahi -- 210 pounds



Gulf of Mexico Grouper -- 150 pounds



Key West Stone Crabs -- 480 pounds



Key West Lobster -- 120 pounds



Atlantic Swordfish -- 90 pounds



South America Corvina -- 90 pounds



Key West Yellowtail Snapper -- 160 pounds



Jamaican Festival Grouper -- 125 pounds



Oyster on the half shell -- 600 pounds



Caribbean and Florida Shrimp -- 145 pounds

California Calamari -- 210 pounds

That translates to a tidy profit for owner Steve Hudson, a businessman and yachtie who took it over with his brother and father-in-law in 2008.
