Do they have eyes, or are these those special BP shrimp?

What? No mention of Global Cooling > Warming > Climate Change in the first paragraph?

Somebody better get to the LabChurch and write some gospel lest they be excommunicated from the Religion of Scientific Intolerance.

Yes, that was indeed two words submittard. A great help for those who can't count past one, but not really relevant.

So, the issue is that the huge shrimp will kill off the tiny shrimp, only leaving us huge, lobsterlike shrimp?

I'm failing to see the problem.

If Cthulu has head lice, I imagine that's what they look like.

It only starts to get gross as you wrap your head around what you are eating.

Lobset == Sea Roach
Shrimp == Sea Cricket

I used to eat some kind of shrimp down in Mississippi back in the 90's that was at least that big. A foot or more, they were the size of a large lobster. I don't know what kind of shrimp they were but you could buy them all over the place. They tasted a lot like lobster too, not that great if you ask me.

I have had tiger shrimp too but they weren't that big. Bigger than a normal shrimp but not huge. They didn't taste very good either.

The problem is gay people will still try to sell you small shrimp and charge you 5x the amount. Meanwhile the huge lobsterlike shrimp still go uneaten.

Those aren't shrimp.

THOSE ARE FARKING REAPERS!

Is this a problem of you not liking shrimp and lobster in general or that these particular species weren't very good?

My first thought.
(used to make a four star shrimp cocktail as part of my job)

I would like to get a half ton of those puppies and play with them in the kithen for a month.

It's just these species. My personal taste says as crustaceans get bigger they get more bland and not as good.

Maybe good for butterflied deep fried shrimp or shrimp with honey mayonnaise and walnuts?

try some white wine, butter and garlic. that might help with the taste.

If tiger shrimp continue to eat the other shrimp population, fisherman's livelihoods may be affected
In other words, they may have to catch and sell the bigger variety instead of the smaller ones in the future. I don't see a problem here.
 
2012-04-27 12:09:28 PM
Butterflied and topped with a crab meat (think crab cake innards) stuffing , put some butter on it and broil
shake on a good shake of Old Bay when it's done!

ChrisDe: Do they have eyes, or are these those special BP shrimp?


They're an invasive species, previously introduced.
However, my suspicion is that there might be a link to the BP spill. The invasive is a hardier species. If the spill temporarily cut populations of both, the tigers would have reduced food competition, and their population might boom back faster.

I can't prove that's what's happening, though.

That's one problem -- though there's a couple reports suggesting they're hardly terrible.

There's also the question of impact on other species higher up the food chain, that used to eat regular shrimp. I'd expect most birds and such will adapt well enough. Still, it drops the eco-diversity temporarily, which reduces the resilience until the new species re-diversifies. That makes the ecosystem more vulnerable to shocks.

FTA: Scientists fear the tigers will bring disease and competition for native shrimp. Both, however, can be eaten by humans.

'They're supposed to be very good,'
Pam Fuller, a biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey told CNN. 'But they can get very large, sorta like lobsters.'

I hope somebody, somewhere who owns a seafood store/restaurant puts a sign out front advertising "miniature jumbo shrimp", with a price for regular shrimp.
