Hurricane Katrina worsens already debilitated native shrimp industry
8 September, 2005
The severe boat and infrastructure damage inflicted by Hurricane Katrina in the gulf states of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana has only further disabled the nation's shrimping industry that was economically struggling to begin with, say bayou shrimpers. The United States coastal region provides nearly half of all US shrimp consumed, with Louisiana hauling in more shrimp than any other state. Mounting fuel costs, fierce competition by way of cheaply produced foreign farmed shrimp are also factors.www.fis.com
