The shrimp are weighed in 5 lb lots, then de-headed and packaged in three separated packages in each carton. The net weight after heads are removed is 3.35 lbs. So each carton consists of 5 lbs of wild caught shrimp minus the heads. You can buy small shrimp online and we also have jumbo shrimp. See the photo below for size comparison.
