Tarvin Seafood is a family-owned business. Vasa, Captain of the Miss Paula, shrimped with Wayne Magwood on the Winds of Fortune from the time he was 12 years old until he took the helm of the Miss Paula in 2011. Mom, (Cindy) handles the marketing and accounting functions, and Dad (Taylor) helps with whatever is needed when he is in town. Other family members – grandparents, siblings, in-laws, and children – help whenever they are available and in town. In fact, if anyone stays on the dock for too long – say 30 minutes or so – they are put to work!
Our shrimp trawlers - the Miss Paula and the Carolina Breeze - are docked at the.Wando Dock on Shem Creek, in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina. Wando Shrimp was a long-time fish house, selling all manner of seafood. With Tarvin Seafood, we have chosen to focus on what the local boats bring in: shrimp and sometimes whiting or squid. We can usually make a suggestion or two about where and when to find other seafood products, even if we do not carry them. We are at the dock and open for retail customers every day during the shrimping season, and on weekends during the off-season, although you can find us most days getting orders ready for our
restaurant customers throughout the year
Our goal is to be one of the best businesses on the creek. We treat our customers, our crew, and the environment as well as we possibly can. We hope to bring shrimp from our deck to your table that is as fresh as possible and to help maintain and sustain the waters that provide for us all
