Catch of the Day

Shrimp boats unload their fresh catches at the Tampa Shrimp Docks. Two family-owned companies, Versaggi Shrimp and Superior Seafood, operate their own fleets and process 4 to 5 million pounds of wild Gulf–caught shrimp yearly. Most is bound for restaurants and markets throughout the U.S. But locals can still get “pink gold” at rock-bottom retail prices by the pound or in 5-pound boxes. The Shrimp Docks are located on Causeway Boulevard in Tampa. Photo by Nanette O’Hara
