North American International Shrimp Competition (NAISC) 2024

“This is the highest quality shrimp I’ve seen in my time as a judge. It’s hard to understand why I’m saying that this shrimp is so good if you’re not here with me. Carbon here, I’m here in person, and I’m going to show you why this is one of the highest quality competitions I’ve ever judged. ” – Carbon Chen (NAISC Judge)

Thanks to Carbon Chen for his tireless efforts in recording and documenting the winners of the 2024 North American International Shrimp Competition.
