1. Every shrimp is born male, then some mature into females.
2. It takes 2 pounds of wild fish to produce one pound of farmed shrimp.
3. Shrimp is the favorite seafood of Americans.
4. The “Pistol Shrimp” can fire water like a bullet from its claw, producing an incredibly loud pop.
5. The “Ghost Shrimp” is transparent, and therefore practically invisible in the water.
