Wanchese Shrimp are wild caught in the Pamlico Sound of North Carolina.
This is the farthest north that any warm water shrimp can be found on the East Coast. In this 100 square mile area, the fresh water from the rivers and salt water from the Atlantic mix together to produce brackish water. It is the unique water that gives the shrimp a sweet taste and firmer bite setting them apart from other wild and farm raised shrimp on the market today.
There are two types of species that we harvest from this area:
