Shrimps, Turtles and Procedure: Global Standards for National Administrations

Abstract :

In 1989, the U.S. imposed an embargo on the importation of shrimp from countries that used fishing methods harmful to marine turtles. The shrimp were not a protected endangered species, but the marine turtles were. The embargo was thus motivated by the rightful concern to protect an animal species from extinction. Holding this embargo to be a violation of Article XI of the 1994 GATT (providing for the general elimination of quantitative restrictions on trade), India, Pakistan, Malaysia and Thailand commenced proceedings on the basis of the Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU) of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
