“Stop Buying Any Shrimp Labeled ‘from Thailand'”

Thailand’s Shrimp Farms Threaten Rare ‘Fishing Cats’ – ABCNews, Apr 24, 2012
…The farms threaten fishing cats in two ways, Cutter said. The first is that the cats are losing their natural habitat to metastasizing shrimp farms, and are sometimes driven to kill chickens belonging to local villagers. Then those villagers turn around and kill the cats.
…The solution, Cutter said, may rest right here in the United States. Many of the shipments from shrimp farms are bound for Iowa, New York, California, all over the country, and one way to help save the fishing cats, Cutter said, is to not buy any packages of frozen shrimp labeled “from Thailand.”
