Foreign shrimp are attacking Florida with garlic and Old Bay?

Invasive species that are edible should never be a problem in areas where there are lots of sportsmen. Unlimited catch all year long on these things, and everyone if FLA will be fatter and there will no longer be shrimps invadin'.

Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.

Cockroach of the sea.

Gee, the most commonly aquacultured shrimp in the world is found in Florida waters? I wonder how that could have happened.

How do you cook something like that while keeping it tender?

Serious, question, by the way...never know when mutant shrimp will move northward.
 
2012-07-28 08:00:48 PM
As far as shrimp go tiger shrimp are not very tasty at all. Blech.
 
2012-07-28 08:01:42 PM
They are supposed to be edible. It is a gift, so to speak.

If prehistoric roaches attacked your flat though, that would be a different story.

Florida is all kinds of farked up when it comes to invasive species. Pretty soon, the only species left there will be non-native.

Agreed. In the meantime though, if they taste even halfway decent, I'm willing to do my part to eat them to extinction in FL. You'll just have to send them up my way on ice first.

They should take advantage of that and start introducing highly endangered species from the rest of the world. Kinda like how starlings are on the decline in England but thrive everywhere else. Link

There's too many people now but a century ago a biologist suggested introducing large African animals to fill in the empty ecological niches in N. America. It'd be cool to see wild camels and elephants in Utah.

Giant shrimp? Isn't that an oxymoron like "city worker" or "airline food"?
 
2012-07-28 08:56:42 PM
I've said this before: If it is edible, it is not a problem.

I call that Brantgoose's Rule of Invasive Species.

The human race welcomes delicious species it can hunt or fish to extinction with a clean conscience. We tend to run out of the other kind.

My first thought was "Meh. Call me when you've got some Blue Crab".

I thought my first meal upon returning home from India was going to be a big thick steak, but now I think I'm going to have to drive up to Baltimore and pay Obrycki's a visit.

Really? Scientists are baffled how they got here? They need to turn in their scientist cards.
With all the imports coming from Asia, they are being transported in the ballist of ships like all the other salt water invasive species.
/I don't even have a scientist card.

I think the hope is that they are some kind of hideous mutant caused by the BP oil spill cleanup, combined with chemical dumping from Venezuela and Cuba.

During a South Carolina Department of Natural Resources aquaculture experiment in the late 1980s, about 2,000 of the species were released into the Atlantic Ocean accidentally.

What, was Earnest working there?
Hey, here's a freakin' thought, why not move your fat lazy ass to where the DAMN THINGS LIVE to study them THERE from now on?

I can't be the only one that's ever had that thought - can I?
How many times does this have to occur before someone with some juice comes up with this idea? How important IS the data that they came up with? What does that data do for us NOW?
idiots.
 
2012-07-28 09:39:03 PM
Well, I can attest that really big lobster is not as sweet tasting as younger, smaller lobster. And jumbo shrimp seems to be a bit stringy compared to med/small shrimp. Does the same line of thinking still follow with these guys, or because they are a large species anyways, would that not apply.

Either way. give me a dozen, I'll be happy to find out.

I know I read about chefs being encouraged to develop recipes for lionfish and other invasive species. Here's the newest Iron Chef challenge ingredient.

If you decide to throw one of these on your barbie, it had better be a big barbie.

Damn it, now I want a crab cake. The kind that are more or less just crab and a tiny bit of other stuff so you can pan fry it as a whole.

It's South Carolina. Give them a break. They've got enough problems as it is. Problems like being South Carolina, to start with.

I would be happy to participate in taste tests to see how tender and tasty they can be made.

I love the simple solutions to invasive species. Make them profitable and remove all the controls we use to prevent depletion of native species and BAM! we can extinct things.
