The Oregon pink shrimp fleet has agreed to suspend harvesting operations for about a month. That’s so the shrimp can grow to a more marketable size.
Oregon pink shrimp are also called salad shrimp because of their size.
The season was delayed this year due to a price dispute.
Brad Pettinger with the Oregon Trawl Commission says there was some concern there wouldn’t be many shrimp once the season got underway.
