Georgetown Shrimp Boat

The Virginia Lynn shrimp boat, docked in Georgetown, looks ready for another day out on the ocean. South Carolina has two shrimping seasons, the first of which begins in May and runs through August. Smaller, brown shrimp are harvested during this season, while the larger white shrimp are harvested from September through December. Many seafood markets fresh-freeze extra shrimp so that they can sell it during the off-season. This allows everyone to eat local shrimp all year long!

When you eat local shrimp, you provide much needed support to your local industries. Inexpensive imported shrimp have flooded into stores, driving prices so low that local shrimpers are struggling to compete. These foreign shrimp may be cheap, but they come with a high cost to our health, environment, and communities. Most of these farm-raised shrimp are given harsh chemicals and antibiotics, which pollute the shrimp and the water they are bred in. Our very own South Carolina shrimp are naturally fresh and flavorful and are caught in our own coastal waters.

Learn more about the South Carolina shrimping industry, and how to find local, wild-caught shrimp in your area.

Do you sell shrimp to the public? We will be in the area next week and would like to buy some fresh shrimp from you if you do sell. Thank you.
