Shrimp Size Chart


Click on Chart to Enlarge View

The shrimp sizing chart above is for buying frozen or fresh headless shrimp in the shell.
 
Most peeled and deveined shrimp is labeled as a finished count, which means that it was peeled from a larger count headless shrimp (about one size up). For example an already peeled & deveined 21/25 count shrimp, was peeled from a 16/20 count headless shrimp in the shell. A peeled, deveined and cooked shrimp loses another size.  

U = under that many shrimp in a pound. For example U/10 is under 10 shrimp a pound.
