Hi. I've seen the references to the fish mongers and mentions of fresh Dorado, Tuna, Wahoo, etc. Can anyone tell me if large or better yet, jumbo, raw shrimp is available for purchase on Bonaire? If so, where? What is the approximate market price as of July 2010?
Thank you.

Hi David,

Welcome to Bonaire Talkhttp://www.bonairetalk.com/newsgroup/clipart/happy.gif

I have never seen fresh shrimp on Bonaire. They are fished a long way from Bon. To be on the safe side, stick with the frozen shrimp.

The last price I saw was about FL 110.00 for U-12 (frozen), which are pretty big. I used to see U-10 here, but not for awhile now. I'm pretty sure that price was for five pounds, so that would make it about $12.35 per pound if all my calculations are correct.
