Pacific white shrimp. The shrimp aquaculture industry and wild shrimp fisheries are in decline in the United States. Eighty-five percent of shrimp consumed in the U.S. is imported, mostly from Asia and Central America. China has invested heavily in research on disease and disease resistance in crustaceans, but the U.S. has invested almost nothing in this area.
