Shrimp Industry Loss of Business Information

Many people may not know that most of the shrimp that doesn’t come from Asia comes from the Gulf Coast. Historically, Biloxi, Mississippi, has the nation’s largest shrimp fleet and packaging operations. For the city, shrimp literally is the business. Shrimping is also big business in Florida. The commercial fishermen of the state caught almost 14 million pounds of shrimp in 2008, worth almost $29 million, according to the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

However, with at least 210,000 gallons of oil a day spilling into the ocean and ability to stop the leak still up to 90 days away, these people and businesses are facing devastation. Thousands of people are involved in the shrimp industry. Boat owners and their crews, along with warehouses, packagers, distributors, and all the others involved in getting the shrimp from the ocean to the grocery store face huge economic losses. Even the opening of the shrimping season early in order to try to get at least some of the shrimp out before the oil spill hit will do little to curb the economic impact.
