The only place to get fresh shrimp right off the boat. Gulf pinks straight from the southern gulf. If you don't know there are 3 kinds of shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico. Texas Browns, Louisiana Whites, & the best tasting Gulf Pinks. There is of course Red deep water shrimp in various locations. Fresh is fresh!

We stumbled upon Trico Shrimp Company one day while riding our bikes. Cars and trucks just kept coming in/out of the parking lot. Super prices. Don't go to the grocery store. Take the time and go to Trico - support your local fisherman. A bonus is the staff is super nice.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see any boats coming in. You need to call between 9-11am and ask if they have boats coming in and when, otherwise they do not know. Great fresh selection of shrimp and fish. Thank goodness they had some fresh made cocktail sauce and they steamed our shrimp right there, we couldn't wait!!! The pink gulf... More

Bought shrimp here the other day. It was about $4 cheaper per pound that other places. Quality and service were very good.

I purchased shrimp here twice in June. Both times it was excellent. I was not sure about grilling my shrimp but they told me what to do and it turned out great! They offered helpful advice and I was happy with my purchase both times! I will return again to buy more shrimp and probably try the fish too.

Since relocating to Fort Myers from Baltimore Maryland, I wanted to find a place to buy fresh raw seafood. Upon searching I found Trico Shrimp Company. This little place is amazing. It's like the little packing houses on the Chesapeake. When we entered the store, the friendly girl behind the counter, Armani, welcomed us and told us that a boat... More

Excellent shrimp. They also have homemade cocktail sauce that is the best we have ever had. Very polite and helpful staff. There are other types of fish also with prices that vary. They advertise their hours as daily, and when we stopped on our way to the airport, a sign on the door said closed that weekend. That was our... More

We were in Ft Myers Beach for a week. We bought black grouper, red snapper, and shrimp from Trico. My husband loves to cook. It was all fantastic!! Their seafood is phenomenal!

Based on reading TripAdvisor reviews and loving my wife and I stopped in yesterday and bought one pound of the large key West shrimp. The place is immaculate and very cute and inviting from the outside with their multitude of flower blooms. My wife cooked the shrimp in beer and old bay, and they were absolutely the BEST shrimp I...

Very fresh seafood. The grouper, yellow fin tuna and the shrimp were great. Good service too. It's not the cheapest, but fresh seafood ever is
