Why are there so many shrimp in the Mexican Gulf?

    The Gulf of Mexico’s unique position on the continental shelf allows its waters to sustain a wide variety of marine life. In a process known as upwelling, rich, life supporting nutrients are brought up from deep in the Atlantic and into the Gulf. This is what allows so many different species, like shrimp, to live in the gulf. the presence of these nutrients brings plankton and other microscopic organisms on which shrimp and other animals feed, creating the lowest levels of a busy food chain.
