Has US shrimp genetics program failed? New US land-based shrimp farm | IntraFish

A US shrimp farm project based on a non US genetics breeding line combined with recent UK disease problems from US (and OIE) approved exotic shrimp imports puts into question the current US exotic shrimp breeding program efficacity and, in fact, the whole controlled movement of live vannamei globally.

Growing exotic shrimp in US using a genetic line that is also exotic to US is certainly one way to restart the local shrimp aquaculture industry.
