……but you can always eat farmed shrimp as a healthy replacement to meat.
Future scenario : urban reefer setups with hooked on robotic steam cookers to deliver food safe (sterilized) products.
Shrimp are that ideal healthy protein package.
We tried capturing adults and juveniles in Ecuador in the 1990’s for Japanese scientists. Full oxygen gear, fish stretchers, acclimitized water. All Mahi Mahi we brought back did not make it.
However, fish still alive and flapping on bottom of boat at end of day were some amberjacks (Seriola) we had caught at same time at our marked FAD point. Very surprised scientists – but a hardy species makes for a good candidate for aquaculture so we suggested to try.
Sure enough they ate pelleted feed immediately when put into tanks at local shrimp hatchery.
Imagine eating basically a dead piece of flesh grown from a genetically managed tissue source in a nutrient soup – just add electricity and possibly a multitude of growth promoters, hormones – who knows what the reactive grown cells may contain….
Prawnmaster prefers naturally grown shrimp. A better ethical choice. Safer as well. Less processed.
Biologically cleaner than an artificially grown tissue framework.
….and the right of cell lines to fulfill their natural biological cycles.
…..and perhaps a strategy humans could follow.
Korean, Philippine or Malaysian?
Instead of worrying about a competition can we not just promote shrimp as being a healthy alternative protein from red meat.
Shrimp markets growing fast enough, by some accounts faster than the plant based sector, and with……
…..farmed shrimp considered a perfect protein frame and resultant healthy packet cultured in nutrient rich bio-reactor (the pond).
….and also seperated from sea caught fished (hunted) shrimp.
…..as well as actually seperated from being a ‘fish’ thank you very much.
