Chris Lukhaup

Chris Lukhaup has been heavily involved with the hobby since the mid 1990’s, traveling to numerous countries and studying invertebrates in their natural habitats. Chris has published dozens of books, given copious amounts of lectures all over the world, and is considered one of the greatest contributors to the hobby. His passion has led him to introduce to the U.S. this contest, in which many other countries are already participating. With his expert knowledge of shrimp genealogy, a talent for bringing people together accompanied with a keen sense of timing, he is proud to not only organize this event, but to also sponsor it as Shrimp King.
