Prawn welfare is not about ‘feeling’ pain or not….it’s also about well, welfare – during the whole life cycle……..density, nutrition, life expectancy, happy to reproduce, general well being, human interface part is called husbandry…

Of course the vannamei shrimp life cycle is completed in one year. That is it.

Then they naturally die. That is the inbred nature of the Pacific shrimp vanna.

Reproduction is after 8 months – each female can spawn millions of viable offspring in one cycle.

Those that survive their early years in the wild get to reproduce.

Others eaten by animals higher up food chain.

Including humankind.

Farming domesticated shrimp is a multiplier to support existing wild….
