They've gone crazy ever since the oil spill and have never come down. Before the spill I was paying about $3-4 for a good 21-25ct shrimp and probably $7ish for a 10-15ct. They doubled/tripled after the spill and haven't really moved a ton yet. I picked up 1000lbs of 10-15s a few weeks ago for a tad under $10lb and it was a steal(wholesalers want about 11-11.50 right now). focking ridiculous.
