Wild Gulf Coast Shrimp are one of few wild shrimp still available. These Texas Shrimp are harvested under a sustainable management plan & follow environmentally safe guidelines. The shrimp are firm, with a mild, sweet flavor.
Wild shrimp and farmed shrimp will have their own distinctive flavor profile simply because their diet is different. Wild shrimp have a more varied diet — they feed on marine organisms, different types of plankton, organic matter. The fish meal pellets that farmed shrimp are fed contain a lot of grains. The wild diet naturally gives wild shrimp a more robust flavor profile than a farmed shrimp raised on a bland, unvaried diet.
The shrimp have shell intact, Individually Quick Frozen (IQF), 16-20 per pound, in 2lb packages that can be kept in the freezer for months.
