Shrimp is not part of the equation and not included in this article.

With shrimp farming the message here is that child labor and environmentally damaging practices are used.

So are US children (future consumers) getting the raw end of the information?

Responsibly farmed shrimp, from say Ecuador, surely should be trying to change the mindset of current US pediatricians and children.

US foodservice companies supplying schools and educational establishments need to get their fingers out and correct this negativity.

Shrimp are extremely healthy and good source of protein.

Wrong shrimp message going out here to future generations that needs to be corrected.

To suck or not to suck….tales that relate.

Lets apply this to shrimp. Its not prawnographic but in Spain the market sells more of heads-on shrimp that any other offering.

However market research shows that when people eat out in Spain they are not so keen on head sucking. They prefer to do this in the privacy of their own homes. Main reason is risk of getting shrimp all over clothes and fingers.

Heads-on shrimp reflects a quality to discerning seafood markets like that of Spain that there has been no processing of the product and that the quality is of a higher standard.
