LA shrimpers are getting answers

Tuesday, September 1, 2009 - 2:25pm

Governor Bobby Jindal has heard the concerns of Louisiana shrimpers... so now he's taking action, by creating a task force to help the industry.

This comes after a two week strike during which the shrimpers held rallies at the capitol.

Louisiana shrimpers say foreign shrimp on the market is hurting their bottom line.

They also say it's cheaper to just keep their boats docked, rather than to cast their nets and bring in just pennies for the shrimp.
