Aquaculture Fact:
Worldwide, there are hundreds of species of shrimp ranging in size from less than an inch to 9 inches long!  Not counting canned tuna, these tasty crustaceans are the most popular seafood in the United States. With or without cocktail sauce or lemon butter, Americans consume more than a billion pounds of shrimp a year.
