 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

Shrimp specialist shop and former shrimp wholesaler Sharnbrook Shrimp has closed.


The 2016 PFK Freshwater Shrimp Retailer of the Year, and also Small Retailer of the Year, based in Rushden, Northants, ceased trading in February.

Owner Lucas Witte-Vermeulen posted the announcement on the store’s Facebook page, thanking all his loyal customers for their support.

The announcement, which was made on February 9, came as a shock to many customers, as only the previous month Sharnbrook had announced that it would no longer be supplying the UK wholesale market, but was reorganising and refurbishing the premises into a “100% retail aquatic shop selling freshwater/marine fish and shrimp, and possibly pond supplies.”
