Ridgeback Shrimp (Prawns)

All this discussion of local spiny lobster has made me VERY hungry.

Is there anyplace in San Diego that sells and/or serves ridgies?

  1. Insider info states catalina offshore sell them. Live in the tanks with eggs on some (as seen on bizarre foods). However the guys that fish for them are fishing lobster now. Therefore it is not being harvested at this time.
