Curbing the Import Appetite: Selling American Shrimp in the U. S. Market

Record #:
Shrimp is one of the most popular seafood products in the country, but what most Americans do not realize is that 90 percent of the shrimp they are eating is imported. Over half of the imports are raised in ponds in Asia and South American and not caught in the wild. This has put the American shrimp industry at a disadvantage in trying to compete with the cheaper imports. Angione explores 'Wild American Shrimp,' a new marking effort of Wild American Shrimp, Inc. (WASI), the marketing arm of the Southern Shrimp Alliance (SSA), which seeks to promote the quality of American shrimp.
