Most people don't know this, but Shrimp trawling is the most destructive form of fishing in the ocean.
Below are real facts from legitimate websites about how horrible trawling nets - and how mindlessly cruel the people who run them - really are:
According to http://saveourseas.com/threats/overfishing:
According to http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-food/factory-farming/fish/commercial-fishing/:
Sharks, sea turtles, birds, seals, whales, and other nontarget fish who get tangled in nets and hooked by long-lines are termed “bycatch” and are thrown overboard. They fall victim to swarming birds or slowly bleed to death in the water.
Scientists have found that nearly 1,000 marine mammals—dolphins, whales, and porpoises—die each day after they are caught in fishing nets. By some estimates, shrimp trawlers discard as much as 85 percent of their catch, making shrimp arguably the most environmentally destructive fish flesh a person can consume.
Now the unthinkable has hppened: trawling nets are available to practically ANYONE! You can buy them on Craigslist.com for 50 dollars! THIS HAS TO STOP NOW. Get the word out, and tell people to STOP EATING SHRIMP, because according to http://saveourseas.com/threats/overfishing: Lowering the demand will lower the damage!
