Debary, Florida (PressExposure) November 13, 2011 -- David Lasher of Shrimp Headquarters has announced the release of a newly created website as a resource for information related to shrimp. The site is designed to fill a gap in the online fishing and shrimping community, where there are few resources to find information about shrimp, the practice of recreational shrimping, shrimp recipes, community forums, and educational information all in one location.
Originally designed for a target audience in the Central Florida region, Shrimp Headquarters is expanding its reach to become a global leader of shrimp information. To help the site grow, and to ensure users get the most out of their experience, Shrimp Headquarters plans to develop its pages using the latest technologies to allow for interaction, ease of use, and relevant content. Different U.S. States and countries around the world have many different wildlife laws driven by existing cultures. What drives the shrimping industry in the U.S. might be completely opposite of the factors driving the shrimping industries in China or Russia. There are people often looking for information like this and more all in one site. According to Mr. Lasher:
I want this site to be the go-to resource for anything to do with shrimp. Whether it's school children looking for research material or photographs, a recreational shrimper looking for tide charts or equipment, or people in need of a good shrimp dish recipe, Shrimp Headquarters needs to have it all. A primary focus of the design of the site is that it will be interactive, similar to how today's social media is operated so people can share their knowledge and ideas. I've met a few shrimpers in Florida that have been shrimping for more than 30 years. To be able to tap that knowledge and transfer it into written form would be very beneficial to a lot of younger shrimpers looking to learn more about it.
It is expected that commercial and recreational shrimpers alike will utilize the sites pages and share ideas about the shrimping industry. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 had a major impact on the shrimping industry, and this site hopes to help people connect in the event it might happen again. The site also includes a gallery where photographs can be uploaded and shared, a video section, and a page directed at children.
From learning how to use the right tackle and nets, to shrimping regulations, cooking, and locations to shrimp, Shrimp Headquarters hopes to become a niche site that will generate interest and action among its followers, and provide its users with the best shrimping information on the internet at the same time.
