The Problem With Bloody Red Shrimp
Shrimp feed on zooplankton, which would otherwise feed baby fish. The baby fish, who can't compete, die out. Then, other animals can't eat the baby fish, so they die out too. The shrimp, are omnivors. They live for 9 months, and are adults after 45 days. Go to http://www.helpthe bloodyredshrimp.ca/
