Rock Shrimp - where to get it

lax2mia | Mar 9, 200706:16 AM     36

I recently read an article in Saveur magazine about shrimping in the U.S. It covered shrimp from all over the U.S. with some diddies about how Key West pink shrimp was "discovered", etc. One of the species covered was rock shrimp found off of Florida's east coast. Where the heck can I get it if it's something found a few hundred miles from where I live? I have never seen it at a supermarket or fishmonger. It's pathetic that when I lived in California I was able to buy frozen rock shrimp and here it is nowhere to be found. Anyone know where to get these guys in S. Florida or do I have to travel to New York or California to get something that's harvested so closeby?
