Quality of Freshwater Shrimp • Guaranteed freshness • Clean taste • Low iodine content • Locally produced • Uniqueness of product • High quality texture and flavor • Aquaculture methods are assuring a sustainable, chemical free product, produced in an all natural environment • Locally, the supply of freshwater shrimp has not kept up with demand. Previous harvests have sold out within a matter of weeks.
