Scientists Create Shrimp Substitute

Shrimp is the most beloved seafood product in America with approximately 2 kilograms consumed annually per capita. However, no matter whether farmed or caught wild, getting these crustaceans to the grocery stores and one’s plates contributes to a number of serious environmental and ethical issues, from marine habitat depletion to human labor abuse and trafficking. In other words, shrimp could hardly be considered a sustainable product and the large volume of consumption only encourages bad practices.
