Desalination and filtration is oft used in shrimp processing facilities and freshwater is also required in hatcheries.
Not clear here at all what shrimp species is being cultured here…
If Pacific vannamei then not sure that growing an exotic shrimp species in Vietnam should be allowed an organic status at all.
ASC should not condoning exotics either..

Specifically shrimp is an obvious good choice. Plankton, grown in majority of shrimp ponds, absorb carbon.

Will be interesting what those promoting this approach will come up with.
Shrimp and avocados do go well together though…
