These sweet shrimp (amaebi) are caught off the San Diego coast in traps. We store them in our live tanks and carefully package them to ensure that they arrive fresh at your door. The delicious tails are eaten raw in sushi bars. The heads are deep fried to make them crunchy and eaten whole. Amaebi come in mixed sizes so that there are anywhere from 8 to 12 shrimp per pound.

Our fresh and live seafood products are as fresh as you can get because we purchase directly from reputable fishermen in California and Baja California who take great pride in providing the highest quality seafood. The seafood is caught and immediately iced or brought to our live tanks until you order. We package it with care, keep it cold in insulated boxes and ship it overnight with FedEx so that it reaches your door fresher than the vast majority of most supermarkets and restaurants. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE AMAEBI TO BE LIVE ON RECEIPT. HOWEVER, AMAEBI ARE GUARANTEED TO BE SAFE FOR RAW CONSUMPTION ON RECEIPT.

Spot Prawns March 26, 2014
Reviewer: Andy Pina from Salinas, CA United States  
We ordered these wonderful Spot Prawns as we've done many times from Catalina Offshore, and were once again blown away by the quality, freshness, etc. We requested as many as possible with roe, and were not disappointed. Always a special treat when we make for dinner for family or friends. We will be back for more soon.

WOW! March 20, 2014
Reviewer: Jenn AC from Houston, TX United States  
Wow...just wow! I have never actually enjoyed amaebi in restaurants and have wondered what all the fuss was all about until we ordered some of these suckers! These dudes were HUGE and so sweet! My family and I made sashimi with the tails and fried the heads (even had roe in the!) Best dinner in a long time! (Also got the HUGE live urchins which were amazing) Yay Catalina!!!

Amaebi goodness September 5, 2013
Reviewer: Stephan Persaud from San Diego, CA United States  
Went to COP yesterday and saw these beauties sitting there on ice when I was picking up my fish order and just had to get some. I got some very nice and large prawns.
Had them last night and they were just sooo delicious. Have been buying my fish from COP for some time now and can't even think of stepping foot into a sushi bar when I can get such good quality stuff to eat at home.

We feasted! June 8, 2013
Reviewer: Suzy from Nipomo, CA United States  
The shrimp were dead when they arrived but still super fresh.  I froze about 1/2 on the spot and used the rest to make amaebi.  Sweetest ebi ever! I even fried up the heads after watching how on youtube.  Amaebi has gotten so expensive in restaurants where I live that this is a much more sensible way to deal with the urge.

Sweetest Ever March 2, 2013
Reviewer: Yi from MA  
These are THE sweetest Amaebi I have tried.  I can get locally live and kicking spot prawns from Alaska, which are also very tasty.  

But for Sashimi, while they look exactly the same, the sweetness does not compare to the ones Catalina provides..

Will definitely order more...
