Okay experts, so I have friends in Canada. Does anyone know if it is legal for me to purchase shrimp in Canada, have them shipped to my friends (in Canada), then have them ship them to me in the US since that is not a commercial transaction? Would that hold the same import laws? Likewise, would the reverse be legal?

You cannot ship live fish, inverts etc from Canada to USA or vice versa without the proper permits. Also shipping from Canada to USA is pretty expensive for quick service and cannot be guaranteed to be on time. You also run the risk of customs officers opening up the box for inspection.
