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.
