Shrimp: No Small Catch

Record #:
North Carolina has a long history of shrimping. Commercial shrimping began in the early days of the 20th-century and centered around the Southport area. Three species of shrimp are caught in the state's coastal waters -- the brown, pink, and white. Green discusses the history of shrimping from Native American times to the present; boats and equipment used; and legal and environmental issues.
