This report is one of a series documenting EJF’s international investigations into the social, economic and environmental impacts resulting from shrimp production and consumption.

Shrimp farming has had major impacts on coastlines (particularly mangrove forests) and coastal communities worldwide. Shrimp is becoming a more affordable food-stuff in industrialised nations but the true cost of shrimp is that paid by the rural poor in producer countries.
