SHRIMP 5 Gallons = ? Lbs ?
I know it would depend on the size you were getting ,as in a bucket of medium shrimp should weigh more than large or jumbos because they would pack in tighter?
Anyway I was just wondering if anyone has a rough idea + - how much a bucket full might weigh? Getting tooled up to go this week for the first time in 20 plus years so I can't wait .Going out of Palmo St. Johns Co.
Hope to have something to report!
i would guess you are looking at about 20-25 lbs..so to be safe i would not go over 20lbs and you
should be dead on..
hope Ben will chime in on this..he will know closer than i will.
Depends on the size of the bucket. If I recall properly, 5 gallons of shrimp will yield about 24 pounds of tails.
Heads on whole shrimp average 35lbs per regular 5 gallon bucket.
For mediums and larges, from shands 5 gallons = 30lbs to the first line, I heard if you top off the bucket its actually 6 gallons.
I agree with APE......35lbs heads on
35 is what we generally figure......heads on.
We have been three days in the past month. Each day we had 5 gallons of mainly large and jumbos from near Shands. Each day was right on 25lbs--heads on.
Also, most "5 gallon" buckets hold 6 gallons. 5 gallons is roughly 2 inches down from the top.
Ditto. What he said
