New Freezer. Need Shrimp/Prawn. USA Only.

I'm a shrimp snob because of the additives that Asian countries use and the questionable nature of gulf shrimp (sad). I'm looking for a good source of fresh or farmed US shrimp or prawns at a reasonable price.

ILoveBlueSea appears to be out at the moment and Top Chef is blowing up with the mentions of spot prawns (but VERY expensive).

What US alternatives am I missing? I'd like to buy in bulk prior to Spring (gets hot in Arizona for delivery) and throw them in the freezer.

Side note, AZ used to have a fantastic farming operation for shrimp but the Asian flooding of the market killed it. I've been upset (obsessed) ever since.
