There are lots of things to celebrate in the month of October.  One of the highlights is seafood.  In honor of National Seafood Month, the Gulf Seafood Marketing Coalition is unveiling a new seafood finder mobile app.  Whether it's baked, broiled, blackened or grilled, caught on the coast or bought by a wholesaler; it's now just a "touch" away.

The Seafood Finder app is available on iPhone and Android mobile devices.  The Gulf Coast seafood finder provides consumers with the latest listing of retail stores, restaurants and wholesalers that carry Gulf Coast seafood. The application allows users to search by state, city and/or zip code as well as by species (crab, finfish, oysters and shrimp).  It also acts as a virtual recipe book, providing everything from appetizers to entrees ideas. Additionally, fans will receive seasonality information to ensure they are serving the freshest, wild-caught, premium seafood available.

If your business or restaurant information isn't on the app just yet, the updates will continue.  Retailers, restaurants and wholesalers that are unlisted, but supply Gulf Coast seafood can add themselves to the finder by visiting www.eatgulfseafood.com and going to the "find it" page or by adding it directly through the app. Gulf Seafood consumers can also add their favorite business to the database by doing the same.
