California—Freshwater Prawns at $29.99 a Pound


On May 7, 2014, I stopped by the Stanford Shopping Center, right near Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, which is very close to where I live now, to check out the price of shrimp at Schuab’s Meat Fish and Poultry.   The last time I did this was in July 2013, and the highest price I found was $27.99 a pound for four-to-six count, wild-caught freshwater prawns (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) from Bangladesh.  Check out the picture below for the current highest price, which is also for wild-caught prawns (M. rosenbergii) from Bangladesh.
