How many jumbo or large prawns in a pound?

Don't know, but I do know that Texas checks on the size of the shrimp before starting a season. I think they go up to 5 miles out. Then the feds start their season. This season started at the same time.for both. The shrimpers come so close to our beach that sometimes I feel as if I could reach out and touch them. My neighbors bragged that they could catch shrimp last week right off the beach. I think I'll try doing that next season to see how true that is. Most of our shrimpers here come out of Palacios, but we have two shrimpers here on the island, one of which docks on the ICW, just across the street from my beach house. While the shrimp are white now, when the bay season starts, they will be brown or pink.

I can see the shrimpers from my back yard...15 to 30 shrimp boats each day; they light up beautifully at night. Shrimp season in the Gulf of Mexico started July 15th and I buy my shrimp fresh off the boat and freeze them individually on cookie sheets. I get the 9-10 per pound which is what they are bringing in right now. Different kinds and sizes are available at different times of the year.
