Shrimp Farming in Indiana..the wave of the future...: "By 2020, the four most popular seafoods "shrimp, salmon, tilapia and catfish " will likely come from the aquaculture industry, Johnson said.
Shrimp farmers such as Don Schumann are part of the reason. Faced with declining profits, Schumann converted his Vero Beach citrus grove to a shrimp farm in 1998. That change came after researchers in the early 1990s found that shrimp can be acclimated from saltwater to fresh water.

Farms for freshwater shrimp and prawns are now run across the country, particularly in warmer Midwestern and Southern states. "

I have actually seen several large prawn farms in Indiana, where former soybean fileds were convereted into large prawn beds.

It is pretty interesting.

I wonder if there is a significant taste difference like there is in farm raised vs. wild salmon.

By the way if you are considering buying salmon of any type, I highly suggest this sitre: Jerry's Meats and Seafoods: Smoked Alaska Salmon shipped right to your door!

Possibly the best smoked salmon I have ever had.
