Shrimp Caught in the Gulf 2009-2010
Supply and Demand of Louisiana Shrimp
Conclusion
• Although in 2011 the quantity of Brown Shrimp landed increased to
39.3 Million landings (in pounds) and the price decreased to $0.88,
50% of the shrimp caught in Barataria Bay were eyeless (Kuhns).
• This was a side effect from the PAHs that contaminated the
ecosystem
• Anthropogenic forcing has caused unprecedented damage to our
ecosystems by depleting and damaging the Earth’s resources
