Been eating a lot of cheap shrimp.
Appears this is a bad idea. A surprisingly bad idea. Shrimp farming kills mangroves, releasing carbon and exacerbating coastal problems, and is not just as destructive per food unit than beef, but according to this new study at least, much more so.
Can I get away with convincing myself that Gulf shrimp are exempt? (I think Gulf shrimp are depressed in value because people still think the entire Gulf is permeated with BP oil.) But I suppose that cheap shrimp are more or less fungible.
Can anyone confirm (or preferably, refute, please, please) this story?
