In Louisiana, your shrimp are truly fresh since you have the biggest shrimp industry in the nation! So..they aren't put on ice. Everywhere else, even the fresh shrimp are on ice because they have to travel. Thanks for thinking of me though.
Steve, thanks for naming the chemical used as a preservative. I knew there was something they use. I'm not sure the people behind the counter even know when the stuff is treated. Does washing the seafood really make enough of a difference or should I stick with pet store stuff which is much pricier?? I'd have to kill any of my fish.
