Did you know that over 90% of shrimp eaten in the U.S. is imported and usually farmed under less than ideal conditions? We source ours from one of the best shrimp trawl fisheries in the world — it was even the first fishery in Oregon certified as sustainable by Marine Stewardship Council, and the first shrimpery anywhere to be certified. It's located in the small town of Astoria, located at the mouth of the Columbia River, just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. 

By eating Oregon pink shrimp, you're supporting traditional fishing communities and eating a healthier, more delicious product. We're proud to use these little guys in our new seasonal shrimp burrito, featured on New York Daily News' Eats Beat, and shrimp temaki roll.
