Anna Marie Shrimp
For Lance Nacio, owner of Anna Marie Shrimp, shrimping is not just an industry—it’s a way of life.
Since 1998, Lance Nacio has captained the shrimp boat F/V Anna Marie, named for his daughters. Raised on the bayou, Lance is dedicated to building a legacy where tradition meets innovation.
Famous restauranteurs and environmental scientists alike call Lance a "visionary" and "gutsy". After Hurricane Katrina, Lance used the low-cost loans to invest in an on-board freezer system. While this technology is used in Alaska and Canada, it was unheard of in the shrimp industry, making Anna Marie Shrimp a pioneer.
Customers are now able to access pristine, fresh frozen, wild Gulf shrimp that are harvested using much less gas per pound.
By investing in environmentally responsible fishing methods, Anna Marie Shrimp is ensuring that Louisiana shrimp will thrive for the next generation of fishermen.
“Born Free. Caught Wild. Delivered Tomorrow.” This is the promise of Anna Marie Shrimp.
