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

    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.)
