About

The Question Your Shrimp blog has moved to www.questionyourshrimp.com. Visit us and see what’s new!

 

Since 1992, Mangrove Action Project (MAP) has been partnering with mangrove forest communities, grassroots, NGOs, researchers, and local governments to conserve & restore mangrove forests and related coastal ecosystems. MAP also promotes community based, sustainable management of coastal resources & has also launched a consumer awareness campaign in the U.S. called Question Your Shrimp.

The Question Your Shrimp campaign is currently working to gather support from restaurants, chefs, retailers, & consumers who are pledging not to serve or buy unhealthy imported shrimp. By raising awareness & changing consumer demand in the U.S. (currently, the #1 consumer of imported shrimp), the campaign strives to reduce mangrove deforestation & oppression of coastal communities overseas.
