Massachusetts—Tasty Harvest Shrimp





Tasty Harvest Shrimp, a family-owned-and-run shrimpfarm in West Boylston, Massachusetts, raises Penaeus vannamei in 19 biofloc tanks.


The company’s webpage says, “We never add hormones or antibiotics to our water.  We simply add salt to create a brine that is almost identical to that of the shrimp’s natural...habitat.  This guarantees that our shrimp are always available to you healthy and fresh—never frozen—at their peak of quality and flavor right out of the tank.”




“It is very common that imported and wild-caught shrimp are normally frozen, thawed and refrozen before finally reaching you, weeks to months later.  ...It loses flavor and quality.  In contrast, Tasty Harvest shrimp is the cleanest and freshest saltwater shrimp you will ever taste.  We offer it year round, and will deliver shrimp fresh to your home or businesses in Boston, the North Shore, or the Metro West.”
