While there are at least 300 species of shrimp in the world, only a small portion are commercially available. They boil down to a few categories: pink, white, brown, and red. That’s right, pink shrimp or white shrimp can actually be one of several different varieties.
For example, the white shrimp you see in stores is usually pacific white shrimp or white leg shrimp. Pink shrimp can either be gulf pink shrimp, Maine shrimp, northern shrimp, Oregon pink shrimp, or southern pink shrimp. But despite a wide variety, some are better than others.
