Behemoth: This black tiger shrimp was caught in 210 feet of water off the coast of Louisiana; an invasion of giant cannibal shrimp into America's coastal waters appears to be getting worse

Daily Mail – A big increase in reports of Asian tiger shrimp along the U.S. Southeast coast and in the Gulf of Mexico has federal biologists worried the species is encroaching on native species’ territory.

The shrimp are known to eat their smaller cousins, and sightings of the massive crustaceans have gone up tenfold in the last year, biologists say.

The black-and-white-striped shrimp can grow 13 inches long and weigh a quarter-pound, compared to eight inches and a bit over an ounce for domestic white, brown and pink shrimp.

I’m really failing to see the big deal here.  So what?  Just catch the Asian Tiger Shrimp, they sound delicious anyway.  That’s how nature works.  It’s called survival of the fittest.  But typical hippy treehugging granola eating biologists want to protect the smaller shrimp.  You know why?  They are mirror images of each other.  Biologists are simply the feminist/occupy wall street/give trophy’s to everyone type people of the shrimp world.
