Hopper shrimp are the chameleons of the shrimp world. Known to many under different names, ie. Key West Pinks, they are known to take on the color they reside in. Central Florida sees more of the brown color Hoppers often confused for “Brown” shrimp. The permanent circular spot they carry on the middle of their abdomen can accurately identify them. They usually range within the middle of the taste spectrum with a tender-crisp texture and a slightly sweet taste. They are versatile and make for great boils. Young shrimp live and grow in nursery areas with marsh grasses, for which these areas offer abundant food and shelter. As they grow, they migrate seaward to deeper, saltier water.
