Fresh Shrimp Sizing Chart

This shrimp sizing chart is for buying frozen or fresh Shrimp in the shell without the head on. All Shrimp are sold by sizes, whether they are sold by the actual count or by a name such as jumbo or extra large.

It's good to know what the marketable name is and the count of shrimp per pound the goes with it.

Good markets or grocers will label the shrimp both ways to help you determine the size you are buying. For example a Jumbo Shrimp would have 21 to 25 shrimp per pound.

The U in the first three Shrimp sizes stands for under that many shrimp in a pound. For example U/10 would be under 10 shrimp per pound
