Georgia Shrimpers to Make Recommendation for Industry

Most of us enjoy shrimp, but for some, it's their livelihood. Last night, dozens of shrimpers turned out at the Mighty 8th Air Force museum for a town meeting with the Department of Natural Resources. They're discussing the rules and regulations that govern commercial and recreational shrimpers in Georgia.

Over the last few seasons, shrimpers have been plagued with poor harvests, high gas prices and competition from cheaper overseas shrimp imports.

Over the next three months, representatives from the shrimping industry will meet in Brunswick to talk about the issues they're facing. In September, they'll make their recommendations.
