    Default Wild shrimp versus farmed shrimp . . .

    The other morning Fred's had some large, wild-caught Mexican shrimp on sale, so, while in there, I stopped to pick up a half-pound (doesn't take much meat to feed my wife and me). While the guy was weighing and wrapping my shrimp, I commented on how much better wild shrimp were than farmed (I once made the mistake of buying farmed shrimp). Anyway, the guy told me that he had a fish tank at home with three piranhas in it, and that he could feed them wild shrimp and they'd devour it. But if he put farmed shrimp in the tank, his piranhas wouldn't touch it. His comment, "If they won't eat it, neither will I."

    A word to the wise . . .

    I raise shrimp in my farm pond for my own use. Works out great for me. I stock the pond with juveniles in the spring and trap them in the fall. They won't survive in water under 65F. They're pretty good eatin'.
