We need more cocktail sauce! Considering what the asian carp did to the rivers around here, I bet the Gulf follows the same devastation. Of course they're going to spawn.

Thanks for reminding me why I hate swimming in the sea.

I like how articles like this portray the "invading" species as aggressors entering a forbidden kingdom.

Well if there is one thing us humans are good at, it's killing stuff off. I suppose I will (not so) reluctantly do my part in eradicating the threat. OP you're right, time for cocktail sauce.

They probably don't taste like shrimp.

It's also tasty, fetching a higher market price than native brown shrimp on the New York market this month. Some shrimpers have wondered if the large prawns could become the fourth harvestable shrimp species off the Texas coast. Hartman, of Texas Parks and Wildlife, is skeptical. "It could be another crop, but at the expense of our native crop," she said.

yum !

Indeed. Their larger and more aggressive cold-water cousins make these puppies look like kittens. Hmmm, what's a good analogy? Pirahna should do it.

Invasive species are never fun, but this looks like it can be bad. This part of the article caught my attention.


Though no one is sure what the ecological impact will be, scientists fear a tiger prawn takeover could knock nature's balance out of whack and turn a healthy, diverse marine habitat into one dominated by a single invasive species.


Healthy, diverse marine habitat?

Corexit or crude oil ring a bell?
