Is it sustainable? Wild-caught shrimp in the U.S Gulf of Mexico and U.S South Atlantic are short lived and reproduce rapidly, making them somewhat resistant to intense fishing. High levels of by-catch are associated with trawls used to fish shrimp. U.S. shrimp trawlers are required by law to use by-catch reduction devices to limit the amount of by-catch, and must carry a turtle excluder device to release sea turtles. Despite these measures, significant by-catch still results.
