Who would have guessed that a tiny ten-legged crustacean would arouse the appetite of an entire country? Judging from the enormous amount consumed each year, shrimp has become America's most popular shellfish. Among the hundreds of species that inhabit the world's seas is Alaska Pink shrimp. Dwelling in icy cold Alaskan waters, this miniature shellfish prefers fairly deep water by day and the sea's shallower areas at night. Caught with special nets, the pink shrimp is then delivered iced to the processing plant where it is precooked, peeled and then frozen.
