Texas is one of the nation’s leading sources of wild-caught shrimp, well-known for its extraordinary taste. Nothing else comes close.

Texas Gulf shrimp are either brown shrimp, which are caught in deeper offshore waters, or white shrimp, which are caught closer to shore. 

Two winners will each receive a five-pound package of wild-caught shrimp shipped directly from the Texas Gulf Coast. The contest is open through July 31, 2019. Enter today for your chance to win!
