The Bush administration Tuesday imposed tariffs on shrimp imports from China and Vietnam, finding that companies there were dumping frozen and canned warm-water shrimp products into the United States at artificially low prices. U.S. seafood distributors and retailers said Americans would face higher shrimp prices at restaurants and in grocery stores if the duties, which take effect this month, were kept.

A rare shrimp that dwells in fast-vanishing freshwater pools of coastal Southern California is being added to the list of the nation's most endangered plants and animals. The San Diego fairy shrimp is known to live in only two pools in Orange County--one in a Costa Mesa park, the other in South County. It is also found in several areas of San Diego County.

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.

The bartender at Moqueca is mixing up flamingo-pink Copacabanas. Brazilian caipirinha cocktails are flowing and there's plenty of Xingu, the dark-as-ink Brazilian beer, being poured. Through the windows of the second-story dining room you can look out over Oxnard's Channel Islands Harbor. The exterior lights catch flashes of rippling water and bounce off the gleaming white boats bobbing by the docks. It's not quite the frenzied Carnival spirit of Rio, but it's easy to imagine that you're partying at a Brazilian seaside resort.

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.
