  • Description:
    "The annual global catch of tropical or "penaeid" shrimp amounts to 700,000 tons. Some of the largest fisheries for shrimp appear to be in waters off Indonesia, Thailand, India and in the Gulf of Mexico. Shrimp are extremely valuable, often of importance for domestic use, but also as a valuable export item. The great value of the shrimp emphasizes the importance of shrimp management, especially since substantial increases in global shrimp production are not expected, hence, making it important to improve management and make most efficient use of stocks in existing fisheries"--Introduction, paragraph 1.
