This article predicts the performance of the seafood departments of supermarkets in the U.S. for the fourth quarter of 2005. For the seafood department, this time of the year is also the Super Bowl of sales. There will be customers who are quite comfortable buying cooked cocktail shrimp in bulk and serving it on their own platters. There is typically huge demand during the holiday season, especially among shoppers who have busy lifestyles, for shrimp rings and customized party platters made in-store.
