Ja.  Of course that carries its own moral dilemmas for some.  We slay one cow to feed many proles, but many bugs would need to be slain to feed a single prole.  On the other hand, most bugs are revolting beasts, at least to normal people.  Shrimp would be the seagoing version of the same moral dilemma.  These too are revolting looking beasts, but so good are they to devour.
