SHRIMP MARKETING SIZES
Shrimp Come in MANY differing sizes. Purchasing them out of the back of a pickup truck or on a street corner guarantees you NOTHING other than perhaps FRESHNESS. Packaged (usually frozen) Shrimp labelling is a different story. The USDA has pre-determined the number (Range) of Shrimp Tails that will be contained in a pound. The Trade Names of each of the Sizes are also pre-determined and cannot vary. Thus: Jumbo Shrimp WILL contain between 21 and 25 HEADLESS Shrimp Tails in each pound with the “Average” number in each package being about 23. Purchasing Shrimp with their heads still on will give you SMALLER Shrimp Tails in each pound. Shells on/off, Tail Shells Only, Cooked, Raw etc. WILL result in slight count/size variances.
