Summer League #14

This animal was famously called “the fruit of ______” by a side character in a pre-2000 American film, due to the variety of ways it can be cooked.

A method of fishing often used for this creature does a lot of damage to the seabed.

The required answer is a common name which refers to many species. Another name often used for these creatures is only a letter shorter, and starts with the same letter this name ends on.

  1. The correct answer is Shrimp! 🍤 It’s a common name for a variety of undersea species, a lot of which are also often called prawns. Shrimp is 6 letters, ends with a p. Prawn is 5 letters, starts with a p.

    Famously, Bubba in the movie Forrest Gump called shrimp the fruit of the sea. The famous meme “My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined.” was a statement said by the YouTube channel TheReportOfTheWeek in his review of Popeye’s Cheddar Biscuit Butterfly Shrimp (https://youtu.be/5d5NJgO38AE).

    Bottom trawling is often used to catch shrimp – however, this harms the seafloor biota, resuspends sediments, and releases a lot of CO2.
