Shrumpin were plump, multi-tailed aquatic invertebrates known to travel in schools of millions along the Sifan Coast. They were one of the most in-demand delicacies at the Skeksis banquets, served alive and wriggling and slowly smothered to death in gravy. The Skeksis prized them so highly that the Sifa Clan were expected to present enormous hauls of them during tithing ceremonies, which caused overfishing that almost drove the creatures to extinction.[1]
