Shrimp Dinner, Egret

When I first moved here I had always assumed shrimp are from the ocean, deep ocean. Well, not close.

Yes shrimp are ocean dwellers, we have commercial shrimpers all around us. But they live in brackish waters also, our rivers and marshes here are tidal (high tide pushes salt water up river).

The Snowy above has a jumbo shrimp. Not from the ocean, or even the river. It was caught in a marsh that has the level controlled by the river flow.

Yep, big shrimp around here, but you should see the Blue Claw Crabs… like an old 1950’s horror movie big. Keeps the Alligators happy.
