Spot Prawns season started?

I'm in Vancouver for today and am hoping to eat spot prawns (missed the festival by one week). Has the season started and if so, where would I be able to eat some either at a restaurant or bought to cook? I'm hoping that Go Fish! on Granville Island will have some but I'm open for suggestions!

  1. I believe it starts next week on May 11th. I has already started (today actually) in Washington State (where they correctly call them Spot "Shrimp".)

    1. Yep i was told it is May 12th but it could be May 11th like fmed mentioned otherwise looking forward to it..Yummmmm!

      1. I heard that it actually officially started today.

          Yes I saw Prawners leaving the harbour this AM.

        2. Kits Daily Kitchen is offering a couple of dishes on today's menu - a ceviche starter and butter poached main

          1. Supposedly first boats are going to be in tonight. I hear it's going to be a pretty short season as well so expect higher prices.
