All about northern shrimp.
Commonly called Matane shrimp because it is in this city that the first shrimp processing factory was built in 1966, in Quebec, the official name is indeed the northern shrimp.
The northern shrimp is the most consumed in eastern North America. In fact, about 60 000 tons of these little delicacies are caught each year.
Tender and tasty, they are low in fat, but full of omega-3, protein, vitamin E, selenium, an antioxidant that promotes a healthy immune system, and phosphorus that promotes healthy bones and teeth.
