Default Cherry shrimp = People food??

We have a visiting post-doc from Japan in our lab. Yesterday, he noticed a shipment of cherry shrimp that I had delivered to work. Immediately the guy recognized them:


Japanese post-doc: "Ahhhh. Cherry shrimp?"
Me: "Yes, that's right. You keep an aquarium?"
Japanese post-doc: "Umm, no." <makes eating gesture>
Me: "You eat Cherry shrimp?"
Japanese post-doc: "Yes! Very good!"

Well, I imagine it wouldn't be hard to commercially breed these guys. (Just add water.)

You know that could be, but he was pretty convincing.

maybe he just thought they were regular "food" shrimp, or was just saying "yummy" to shrimp in general?

he wouldnt have thought they were "regular food shrimp" because he was correct on the type they were. But that is incredibly funny. He could have been fooling with you though. i work at a LFS and an Asian gentleman came in to purchase a few dozen feeder gold fish. When i asked him what he was feeding them to he looked at me and said, "my dog, she love them." and then walked away..
