In early November I was traveling in Louisiana and had the opportunity to go out on a commercial shrimp boat. The owner, a fourth generation shrimper, was very kind and explained how they’ve been running the family business over the years. “Shrimpin” isn’t easy. It’s a dangerous job and loaded with huge financial risk. They’re tough Cajun’s and very proud. Next time you’re shopping for shrimp, make sure it’s from the Gulf. Shrimp from Thailand and Viet Nam are “farm raised in sewer water”. After we got off the boat, we went out for Gulf shrimp po’ boys.
