Squandering the Seas: How Shrimp Trawling is Threatening Ecological Integrity and Food Security Around the World
Annabelle Aish (au); Steve Trent (au); Juliette Williams (au)
Shrimp trawling is contributing to environ’l. over-exploitation & social injustice around the world. The main impacts are: Trawling is a very un-selective fishing method, with 10-20 kg of non-target marine organisms caught (& commonly discarded) to obtain just 1 kg of shrimp; Tens of millions of tons of by-catch are discarded every year by shrimp fisheries alone; Populations of many ‘by-catch’ species have declined rapidly: Trawling for shrimp in coastal areas is devastating local fish stocks that have supported fishing communities for cent.; Endangered species are at risk, with shrimp trawling killing over 150,000 a year; & As shrimp trawl nets are dragged over the seabed, extensive damage is caused to sensitive habitats that sustain the oceans’ productivity.
