Hi, I'm doing a research paper on the indoor shrimp farming. Does anyone know have many indoor shrimp farms there are in the US?

The New Shrimp List is created to replace the Yahoo group shrimp list that has been deprecated by Yahoo. This new site will allow anyone interested in the shrimp industry to post, question, search, blog, etc. etc. the new site offers much more flexibility and in time should serve as an extensive knowledge base for anyone who wants to learn more about the shrimp industry.

Signing up is free and simple. you may cancel your membership at any time. All we ask is that you conduct yourself professionally on this professional site.

Hello Fridi. In your research, it may be worthwhile to separate commercial operations from small backyard operations like the type RDM is setting up around the State of Indiana. I would consider most of these backyard operations as more like hobby farms rather than commercial shrimp farms. That is why most of them end up closing down within two years of launch. I would venture to suggest a minimum of three years in operation before being included on the list!

 

Hi Fridi,

Finally, someone is updating the total number of shrimp farms in the U.S. from that made by Granvil Treece in 2018 from a Texas perspective.

Keep us updated when you’re done.

Thanks in advance.
