I'm headed to the Southern Ill Ride-in in Duquoin. I've been to the shrimp festival and it was great but already made plans.

Fresh water shrimp? Is that same as crawdads or something altogether different?

No, it's more like a saltwater shrimp or prawn, raised in fresh water ponds, without the brine taste. You might be surprised how many shrimp sold nowdays are actually freshwater.

Although very edible, IMHO they're not as good as saltwater.
