Testimonials

"Best shrimp we've ever had" is a common feedback we get.  We think you'll agree.

FAQs

Q:  What is so special about these shrimp?

A:  Pacific White Shrimp are coveted by experts because of their sweet and delicate flavor.  They are also raised in an eco-friendly manner without the aid of antibiotics so you are guaranteed a wholesome product.

Q:  I don't know how to fix fresh shrimp. Is it a lot of work?

A:  Preparation is minimal and easy!  These shrimp do not require deveining and should be cooked with the shell on for best flavor.  We will share our cooking tips and recipes when you pick up your shrimp.

Q:  Why pay more for these shrimp when I can buy frozen shrimp in the store for a lot less?  

A:  Our shrimp are locally produced and fresh.  In the US, we import over 80% of our shrimp from other countries (Taiwan, etc.), who farm their shrimp in large outdoor ponds where regulations (for antibiotic, hormone, chemical, and preservative use) are not the same. You are buying cheaper shrimp, but those imported shrimp are from thousands of miles away and have been frozen for a long time.  There is a big taste difference. We guarantee you will notice.

Q:  Am I buying live shrimp?

A:  No.  Your shrimp are hand-picked when you order and placed in an ice water bath which they don't survive.  This is the most humane way to harvest them and this also ensures you have a fresh product ready to take home.  The neatest thing is you are buying "off the boat fresh shrimp" hundreds of miles from the coast. Fresh Nebraska Shrimp!

Q:  Do I have to cook them right away?

A:  No.  Fresh, whole shrimp are perishable, but are OK in the refrigerator for 48 hours after they are harvested.  If you are unable to cook them at that point, just remove the head and freeze the tail.

Q:  Can I call or message and preorder?

A:  Preordering is a good idea, especially for 2 lb orders and larger.  It allows us time to hand-select your shrimp for size and quality.

Q:  I have heard aquaculture is not sustainable.

A:  Our production practices ARE sustainable.  We recycle ALL water and do not discharge any waste into the environment.  A portion of the shrimp's diet is plant-based also.  Due to our "green" method of production, we can minimize the need for fishmeal feed, avoid negatively impacting the environment, and can raise our Nebraska shrimp without the aid of antibiotics.
