EAST NORTHPORT - A Long Island seafood company is now shipping its shellfish to China.

K&B Seafood of East Northport sends a ton of oysters, lobsters and other shellfish to Hong Kong every week, according to Newsday. That is about 10 to 15 percent of its business.

Experts say K&B is an example of the serious export potential in the northeast as seafood is seen as an important high-end food in China.
