(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Shrimp lovers should prepare to be shell-shocked.
Shrimp prices are skyrocketing to record highs, due to a disease that's plaguing Thailand, China, and Vietnam--the world's three largest shrimp producers.
Right now, white shrimp prices are hovering around $6 per pound, which is a more than 50 percent increase from this time last year.
