Prompted by a legal settlement, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed designating 36,501 acres in Southern California--including parkland in Orange County--as "critical habitat" for the endangered San Diego fairy shrimp. Activists and officials agree that the tiny crustacean, once common in the Southland, has been driven to the brink of extinction by development.

Is it any wonder that "Forrest Gump's" Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. was such a moneymaker? They were harvesting cooked shrimp! Ahh, Hollywood! DONALD M. DAVIS Yucca Valley

Shrimpers in the southern United States asked the Bush administration to slap duties on shrimp shipments from China, Vietnam, Ecuador, Brazil, India and Thailand to stem cheap imports of the shellfish. The Southern Shrimp Alliance sent petitions to the Commerce Department and the International Trade Commission asking that conditions of fair trade be restored by imposing anti-dumping duties on the shrimp imports from the six countries.

Dear SOS: I would love the recipe for "drunken shrimp" from the Gumbo Pot at the Farmers Market on 3rd Street. They always warn you that "it's the hottest thing on the menu" and I agree! Patti Astor Hollywood Dear Patti: Gumbo Pot owner Charles Myers and chef Clinton Thompson sent us the recipe. The spicy and flavorful beer broth makes a delicious sauce for shrimp. Serve this over rice or on its own with a crusty loaf of bread. Drunken shrimp Total time: 30 minutes Servings: 4 to 6 3 (12-ounce)

There were so many attorneys assembled for the 26th annual Blackstone Ball at the Sheraton Harbor Island Hotel on Saturday that the cocktail-hour catering contract specified 11,000 large shrimp to be served from carved-ice clam shells displayed on five separate buffets. That's a lot of shrimp, but, then, there were a lot of lawyers at "Night at the Copa."

At Water Grill, the raw bar rules. Always has. And in downtown Los Angeles, Water Grill is an institution on the order of Tadich Grill in San Francisco (though not nearly as old). I don't know what it is about being away from home, but it seems to bring out a craving for seafood. Conventioneers and tourists staying in hotels downtown zero in on this long-established restaurant to slurp oysters, crack crab legs and generally make merry. The location in the 1922 PacMutual Building with its crenellated carved ceiling, richly textured marble walls and ornate brass doors is a big part of its appeal.

It's been either muggy and sticky hot, or now just plain hot, and a girl gets thirsty. Come early evening, I'm ready for an apéritif, and this Spanish rosé has become a favorite. Dry and crisp, the Muga rosado carries a scent of wild strawberries and tastes a bit like that too. Graceful and nuanced, this rosé is still gutsy enough to pair with bold flavors. I've enjoyed it with gazpacho, shrimp in achiote sauce and grilled quail. It's great with guacamole and corn or tortilla soup too. Just what you want in a basic summer wine: versatility.
