Shrimp prices are skyrocketing to all-time highs, amid a disease that's plaguing the three largest prawn producers: Thailand, China and Vietnam. White shrimp prices are nearing $6 a pound, up 56% from a year ago, according to an Urner Barry index.

...glad I stocked up...but I'll pass on the ones from Thailand, China and Vietnam anyway.

Amen to that! I'll never eat anything out of those waters.

If you spent any time in Vietnam you would absolutely never ever ever eat anything from there. I have seen them drop a load right in the rice paddy, like it was no big deal. You can say they've changed. Yeah. Keep on believing that.
