Fresh Local Tybee Shrimp are on their way. Season begins June 10th.

Don’t you just love watching those lazy ole shrimp boats cruising the Tybee coastline?
Tybee’s restaurants serve up this local delicacy in many interesting and delicious ways from the good old stand-by fried shrimp at Stingrays to shrimp and grits at The Breakfast Club

Georgia’s food shrimp season for commercial and recreational shrimpers officially kicked off Tuesday at 6 a.m.
From 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset, commercial shrimpers can cast their power-drawn nets in state waters. However, shrimping is allowed 24-hours a day more than three miles off shore in federal waters.
Ambitious net-casters must adhere to the 1,000 foot boating safety zone along the beaches of Tybee Island, Sea Island, St. Simon’s Island and Jekyll Island. The zone is in effect until Sept. 30.
