"A fascinating study of the shrimp industry at the current time. The book is well written, the subject is interesting, and the theoretical aspects add both depth and breadth to our knowledge of maritime communities in the United States, and beyond."--James Acheson, author of Lobster Gangs of MaineCited by: The global shrimp market surpassed its US$ Bn mark in The demand for frozen shrimp is rising as it is easily available as well as easy to cook.

As coronavirus outbreak spreads rapidly across the globe, population have now started to prefer vegetarian food, which is indirectly hampering the growth of global shrimp market/5(12). Inthe combined value of several key species groups for all five states in the Gulf region – shrimp, oysters, blue crab and red snapper – was more than $ million.

(See Table 2.) Shrimp are decapod crustaceans with elongated bodies and a primarily swimming mode of locomotion – most commonly Caridea and narrow definitions may be restricted to Caridea, to smaller species of either group or to only the marine species. Under a broader definition, shrimp may be synonymous with prawn, covering stalk-eyed swimming.

THE SHRIMP AND THE SHRIMP INDUSTRY OF THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES by William W. Anderson Fishery Research Biologist The shrimp fishery of the United States is centered primarily in the eight South Atlantic and Gulf States (North Carolina t o Texas) where about million pounds valued at approximately $60, NMFS closes the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off Georgia in the South Atlantic to trawling for penaeid shrimp, i.e., brown, pink, and white shrimp.

This closure is necessary to protect the spawning stock of white shrimp that has been subject to unusually cold weather conditions where state water temperatures have been 9 °C (48 °F), or less. Under 50 CFR (a), NMFS may close the EEZ adjacent to South Atlantic states that have closed their waters to the harvest of brown, pink, and white shrimp to protect the white shrimp spawning stock that has been severely depleted by cold weather or when applicable state water temperatures are 9 °C (48 °F), or less, for at least 7.

India produced more than 7,00, tonnes of shrimp in and exported more than 6,20, tonnes to the United States, European Union, Japan and China. The production comes from around 1,70, ha of shrimp farms along the country’s coast, with Andhra Pradesh contributing a major share — of more than 4,00, tonnes.
