Seabob is a small-sized white shrimp with a sweet taste. The shrimp are caught by Heiploeg's own vessels and immediately processed upon landing in Heiploeg's automated processing plants in Suriname and Guyana. The raw peeled shrimp are then further processed and packed in Heiploeg's plants in Zoutkamp, the Netherlands.
