Side-Stripe Shrimp

$15.00

Wild-caught in The Gulf Of Alaska, Side-Stripe Shrimp are prized for their texture & clean, sweet taste. They only take a minute or two to cook as their red/brown color quickly turns bright pink. Smaller than our Spot Prawns, Side-Stripe Shrimp are easy to peel & prepare. Side-Stripe Shrimp is one of the few shrimps you can eat raw.

The shrimp industry is known as one of the most destructive fisheries, with large quantities of bycatch, pollution, and loss of habitat.

Wild Alaskan and West Coast shrimping operations shine as an exception to this tendency, since shrimping operations are primarily community-based, with a great deal of local fisher involvement in management, and long-term sustainability as an important requirement!  (ADFG, Spot Shrimp)


  • Low in calories & fat.
  • Good source of protein & iron.
  • Side-stripe shrimp’s habitat ranges from the Bering Sea to northern Oregon. They love the soft, muddy ocean bottoms as deep as 2100ft. (ADFG, Sidestriped Shrimp)
  • These shrimp can reach up to 8 inches in length and are, of course, recognized by the white stripes running along the sides of its body.
