  • Why can't I find wild shrimp?

    It seems all the shrimp I can find is farm-raised. Without having much first-hand knowledge of what farm-raised really means I am against it because of everyone else's comments on it and the fact that fish aren't naturally raised in a farm. So... do any of you eat farm-raised shrimp?? Is it okay to eat?

    It seems that one day we won't have access to any wild caught fish...

    I try to avoid them, but I can usually find wild shrimp pretty easily in my grocery store. Have you tried going to a store that only sells seafood? Or do you live somewhere far inland?

      Have you looked in the frozen section? I buy them at Kroger and Publix, if you have them nearby.

        Whole Foods had two types in the seafood case yesterday.

          The Emeril brand shrimp are wild caught.

            Whole Foods had wild Gulf shrimp on sale this week, but I was afraid to buy them. Was I wrong? Still nervous.

                You must go to the Wild.

                  I live in the Pacific Northwest so it seems ridiculous not to have easy access to wild shrimp. When I do come across it, which is rare, it's super pricey! I don't have Whole Foods by me. The Kroger brand I found was farm-raised.

                    Do you live near a food coop? Plenty of wild-caught shrimp available at ours (Port Townsend.)

                      Good question...Royal Reds come from deep, deep down in the Gulf...I would hope WF has some sort of testing protocol?

                        I buy wild caught shrimp at Target. They have a fair amount of wild caught product

                          The only thing I've been able to find that I'd touch with a 10-foot pole is at Trader Joe's. They always have Japanese-caught (guess that, like anything from the Gulf, is now out...) and sometimes will have Argentinian-caught. When they can get the Argentinian-sourced stuff in, it's a surprisingly good price (as far as wild shrimp goes). I posted it here the last time they had some.
