    2009 JIM CARRIER — Jim Carrier wrote All You Can Eat for Orion Magazine about the devastating effects of shrimp farming throughout the world. Some shrimp are raised in such dirty water that antibiotics must routinely be used. Even in the best farms, two to four pounds of sea life is caught and ground up for every pound of shrimp caught. In the U. S., 90 per cent of our shrimp come from foreign farms and FDA sample less than 1 per cent of it. The article was selected for the 2010 anthology, The Best American Science and Nature Writing, published by Houghton Mifflin.
