Shrimp Size Chart
Understanding shrimp sizing can be tricky. Chances are, you’ve noticed a number on the front of a bag of shrimp. Is it referring to the size of the shrimp or the number of shrimp in the bag? In most cases, it’s referring to the actual size. Shrimp size is designated by “count per pound”; meaning, if the number reads “26/30 ct/lb,” that is the number of shrimp per each pound. The lower the number of shrimp per pound, the larger the shrimp, and vice versa.
Note, there is no standard definition for the descriptor of each size designation; it can vary from retailer to retailer. This table is a helpful guide to assist you in understanding shrimp sizing:
|Shrimp Count per Pound||Size Description|
|16/20 – 21/25||Jumbo|
|41/50 – 51/60||Medium|
|61/70 – 71/90||Small|
