    Vital Choice Shrimp Burgers feature our superbly tasty, sustainably harvested, Fair Trade Certified Wild Artisan Blue Shrimp.

    We season our burgers with Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus pinches of sea salt, pepper, and garlic.

    There are no fillers or binders — shrimp are naturally rich in gelatin, which keeps the burgers whole and firm before and after cooking.

    *On rare occasions, Burgers may contain small fragments of shrimp shell.

    By choosing our Wild Shrimp Burgers, you support worker empowerment, local economic development, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship. To learn more, read on.

    About the shrimp in our burgers
    Our Artisan Blue Shrimp are hand-harvested from small, single-person boats in Mexico’s Gulf of California.

    Instead of big trawlers, the fishery features small boats called pangas that meander through coastal lagoons in the Gulf of California.

    The fishermen — who belong to local co-ops — employ an artisanal, highly selective harvest technique called suripera, which relies on tides and wind to drift the boats and their hand-cast shrimp nets.

    This technique has the lowest bycatch and fuel consumption per pound of seafood in the world — and this is the only shrimp fishery in the world certified as fair trade (see “Fair Trade certified”, below).

    Because of the panga boats’ limited range and storage, they off-load shrimp within hours of harvest, to be rushed to a state-of-the-art processing and freezing facility.

    The shrimp are cleaned, frozen, and shipped to us within a few hours of capture, providing you with what may be the finest, most sustainably produced shrimp in the world!

    And, by selecting these spectacular shrimp, you’re supporting sustainable seafood — as well as conscientious fishing families and communities!

    Fair Trade Certified
    The fishery supplying our Mexican Blue Shrimp received Fair Trade USA™ certification in 2016 — the first shrimp fishery in the world awarded that high honor.

    The Sinaloa-based fishery — based in the red regions on the map at left — was found to meet the rigorous requirements of Fair Trade USA’s “capture fisheries” standard.

    To earn certification, the producers had to meet criteria designed to promote worker empowerment, local economic development, social responsibility and environmental stewardship.

    Upon meeting those high standards, it became the world's first fair-trade-certified shrimp fishery.

    By selecting Fair Trade shrimp, you help fishermen earn enough to invest in projects that support the local ecosystem, and the communities that provide our amazing shrimp.

    "Too Salty" Mary Ann on 01/15/2021 02:29 Review: This was a gift so I'm going on my son's review which was that the shrimp burgers are too salty to eat. He did not enjoy the product and had to throw it away. Perhaps you should consider not adding salt as shrimp is already quite salty? We are shrimp lovers and were quite excited to find a product already made into patties. A disappointment for our first item out of the 4. The rest are fish portions so he will cook them and report. This is my first ever negative report on anything!!! Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment about this product. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you regarding this order. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team

    "I love shrimp burgers." Julie D on 01/14/2021 16:39 Review: I enjoy this product. As a pescatarian, it's nice to have my fish in this burger presentation. A little aioli and lettuce on a brioche bun, it's heaven.
