Georgia Wild Shrimp

Recommended Posts

Our Georgia shrimping fleet has diminished in size considerably, primarily due to cheap imported pond raised shrimp, the cost of maintenance on their boats , nets, gear, etc ....doesn't allow them to compete with the cheaper imported shrimp from China and other countries. If you have ever actually compared the difference in taste, texture and quality of the imported shrimp to our Georgia wild local shrimp...you know that there is no comparison. 

The Georgia coast was once home to thousands of shrimp boats from Savannah down to St Mary's....nowadays it's probably less than a hundred total on the entire Georgia coastline.  

Next time you get a chance to buy either import or local....support your local guys.

I have family on the Wilmington River in Savannah and visit them often.  I have definitely noticed less shrimp boats around.  Sad to hear about.  Anytime I buy seafood it has to be locally caught.  I will pay more for quality but sadly most people wont.  Great pic BTW.
