Macro lens will make it worst. The DOF will depend of MM range of the lens and the shooting distance too.

Lol, funny you mention that; capturing the whole shrimp in focus is actually what I want to do. Not sure if I'm just lacking the skills (most likely ) or need a macro lens or what. Any tips?

dxiong5 I picked up a set of diopters (no $ for a true macro lens yet!) and have been playing around with them. They seem to work okay, just have to be steady and expect to take LOTS of pics from which one or two will turn out "decent." Some examples:
