    Can we buy much fresh shrimps(not previously frozen) in Montreal? Maybe not. What is the best shrimps available in the Montreal-area? From which part of the world, their size, fresh or frozen, farm or wild?

      The fishmonger on des Sources sells wild shrimp from Mexico, were they previously frozen? I don't know but probably. $20/lb though, I have yet to buy any, maybe this weekend. It sure beats the farmed stuff from Thailand.

        It was probably frozen before(frozen shrimp can also be very good). I've seen Gulf of Mexico frozen shrimp for around $20/lb in Montreal.
