Fun Shrimp Fact #1

Americans eat about 1.7 billion pounds of shrimp each year, making it the most popular seafood choice. 

Fun Shrimp Fact #2

While there are over 1,000 different species of shrimp, only about 20 of those species are commonly eaten by humans.

Fun Shrimp Fact #3

Shrimp is one of the most versatile foods and has an almost unlimited amount of ways in which people prepare it: barbecued, boiled, broiled, baked, pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried, steamed, grilled, breaded, raw, stewed, sautéed. Check out our recipes to see how we do shrimp!

Fun Shrimp Fact #4

Some species of shrimp can live up to 7 years. Biologists have never seen shrimp celebrate their birthdays, but it could happen.

Fun Shrimp Fact #5

Certain species of flamingos are pink because they eat shrimp. Brine shrimp, to be exact. Biologists explain that this color-changing phenomenon is based on the shrimp’s high levels of carotene. We just call it the “Miami Vice” effect.
