Wanchese Shrimp are wild caught in a 100 square mile of the Pamlico Sound in North Carolina on our fleet of vessels. This is the farthest north that any warm water shrimp can be found on the East Coast. In this area, the fresh water from the rivers and salt water from the Atlantic mix together to produce brackish water. This brackish water is what gives the shrimp a sweet taste and firmer bite which is different than other wild and farm raised shrimp on the market today.
There are two types of species that we harvest from this area:
Available fresh in season and frozen, Wanchese shrimp come in an impressive range of sizes to suit every appetite and occasion. They are easy to prepare and can be baked, broiled, grilled, sautéed, or fried to fit a wide variety of menu applications.
