HOUMA, LA (WVUE) - Louisiana shrimpers are meeting Wednesday to discuss their livelihood.

The Louisiana Shrimp Association will gather in Houma to address shrimp prices.

Shrimpers say they can barely get by because prices are so low.

Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser believes requiring inspections for imported shrimp could result in the rejection of a lot of imported shrimp and in turn help local shrimpers.
