Do You Know Your Shrimp’s History?
December 28, 2020
Americans ate 16.1 pounds of seafood on average in 2018, the most in nearly a decade.
But how many of us know where our shrimp come from?
Only wild-caught, American shrimp give you the succulent flavor that transports your mouth to a seaside resort — enriched from the sun-soaked nutrients of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Ocean, free from any antibiotics or other chemicals, and caught & processed by American workers rather than enslaved or forced labor — so you always want to know that you’re serving the best: and not imported shrimp from some farm-raising pond.
