Senator Wicker Shrimp Industry

During visits to Washington D.C. on behalf of the domestic shrimp industry, the delegation had the pleasure of meeting with Senator Roger Wicker, who took time out during the busy impeachment trial to hear about the industry’s issues and concerns.

We appreciate his interest and concern for ensuring the viability of the domestic shrimp industry in the face of unprecedented imports and fisheries disasters.
