Galveston, TX - read all about it!!!

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

Fishermen in Galveston Bay were dealing with the worst white shrimp season (2011) in memory. Production was down 80 percent from last year.

“Each year it’s getting worse and worse,” said fisherman Jack Morris. He suspects the lack of fresh water due to the drought has either thrown off shrimps’ reproductive cycle or manipulated underwater vegetation so that his nets can’t capture the shrimp.

There’s a lot of disagreement over why this shrimp season has been so bad.

Fishermen think it could be the aftermath of the BP oil spill, dumb luck or just a cyclical phenomenon. Many fishing boats are docked and let go workers.

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......if you have any!

Hello Tomros.

I'd rather eat it than read all about it - but I guess the shell would get stuck between my teeth.


You say you don't reply to comments.

OK. Fair dos. You set your stall out so that's fine.

But maybe you are missing a trick here, as the banter and repartee can be good fun!!

All best wishes from Cornwall and Madrid, Andy

Andy, I do reply to comments, just not necessarily thank everyone on my pages for each message

I buy my shrimps frozen. Mostly, they come from Thailand! (

Cornwall, Ontario or England?
