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.

Reviewer: DTP from Des Moines, IA United States  
Ordered at 11am cst and arrived at 10am cst the next day.  A few amaebi were still alive, but all are mostly fresh.  Made some flambe prawns with vodka.  SPOT on.  no pun intended.

It was FROZEN not live July 10, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from menifee, CA United States  
I thought it was live shrimps or at least the fresh ones, but turned out to be completely frozen. The quality was ok. I kinda felt weird after thawing that in order to eat raw. I ended up cooking them like average shrimps.

**** I got a call back from the company couple days after I wrote this review. I think it was one of those days or it was accident that I got the frozen one. I got taken care of and they sent me another pound of amaebi to make up. It WAS THE BEST ONE!!! Thanks Mark :)

Amaebi July 7, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Salem, MA United States  
  Catalina is being very professional in handling the complaint of my order. I can't ask anything more. I did not like the Amaebi I got but the company has taken care of it. This is why I am changing the review from the previous one star to four stars. Thank you Catalina for your professionalism.

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!!!
