You can load it up and take it home. It's legal.

We always used to pack our freezer full of shrimp when we returned to the US. Now we live here!

I heard the limit was 65 pounds of shrimp.We buy our shrimp from the seafood processor on Sinaloa across from Burger King.

If you buy shrimp on the Malacon, be sure to take a weight with you. Their scales are a tad off and not in your favor. They usually have another scale under the counter.

We usually bring 20 pounds or so back, no problem

I carry a 1 Kg and a 0.5 Kg weight to check the scales. In the Malecon as soon as they see the weights they point me to the good scale! We prefer 3 Brothers by the harbor where the fishing boats put in. Their scale has been dead on every time I have checked it!

Sonora beef is also excellent and actually has flavor! You are allowed to bring 50# of Mexican beef to the USA.

From The Customs and Border Protection website.

Fish - Personal amounts of fish, shrimp, abalone and other seafood are allowed and can be fresh, frozen, dried, smoked, canned or cooked.

I'm sure that each crossing and each official has their own criteria just like in Mexico.

I just spent a while looking for that information and haven't had any luck.

When we lived in the US we always brought back several whole filet mignon. Excellent!

I called the Agriculture agent in Lukeville at the border office. I also was secondary inspected by him later and asked if that was per person or per vehicle. He said per vehicle.

I read these Mexico threads occasionally and have a question. Is there anything were the locals won't try and cheat you? The cheat you on scales, they cheat you at the fuel stations, the police want bribes and on and on. Is it paranoia or just the way of doing business south of the US border?

Never been cheated on gas because I only give them how much I want to spend in pesos and then make sure the pump is back to zero before pumping.

Never been asked for a bribe from the police

Been cheated on shrimp once on weight and then once on size.You make a deal for grande size and those guys can shuffle thru the ice like they are picking up the best grande but when you get home you find some small instead and she picks the shrimp she wants. The wife also brings her weight when shopping the Malacon. Those we eat in country. When purchasing to come home we go to the fish processor where we get the exact weight and size we want. They are also cleaned and frozen in a nice box that fits the freezer.
