In 1999, the World Trade Organization ruled against a US law that required countries that exported shrimp to the USA to use a special shrimp device on shrimp nets. The device prevented sea turtles from becoming entangled in the nets and drowning. India, Pakistan, Malaysia and Thailand challenged the law, saying it unfairly discriminated against their shrimp exports.
