I was roaming the web and saw this -

Anybody tried anything like this?
The life cycle of the shrimp (much like salmon) requires purchasing small ones to grow out, but the profit potential vs. input looks good.

I got 404'ed on that link - but I followed it back to the University of Kentucky website and searched for 'shrimp' in the search bar. Several articles around.

Here's a PDF with way lots photos about home scale shrimp and catfish farming

http://www2.ca.uky.edu/wkrec/HomeUseCatfishShrimp.pdf

Its way larger scale than I'd be interested in even at that (I would think about a few 55 gallon drums full though) but seemed like something that could definitely be of interest to many

Edited for stupid rushed typos

i always thought about hooking it up to a pond that the ducks use all the time and running it that way pumping it up.. setting up the beds then letting the water go back out to a regular ole pond ... maybe setting up another system to run the shrimp/water fleas/ duckweed... or whatever


the one thing i dont get it how to setup a "seed shrimp" on the cheap

Here's a small farm's website that I ran across a few years ago. They're in Indiana. Not the best website, but gives you an idea about shrimp farming in the midwest - Joe
