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.

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.

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.

The U.S. International Trade Commission said Tuesday that cheap imported shrimp is harming U.S. fishermen and recommended the federal government consider anti-dumping levies. After reviewing thousands of pages of briefs and hearing testimony from fishermen and processors along the Gulf Coast and Southeastern seaboard, the ITC issued a 6-0 ruling that there was "a reasonable indication" that low-priced competition had harmed the domestic industry.
