Desert Sweet Shrimp

This unique aqua farm grows quality shrimp in a series of large ponds fed by mineral-rich waters pumped from deep undergrounds wells. The shrimp are raised free from the hormones, antibiotics, chemicals or mercury that can be found in ocean-raised shrimp, while the naturally low salt content of the water gives the shrimp a surprisingly sweet taste. And these desert shrimpers have found a novel way to reduce the water pollution associated with shrimp farming by recycling the nutrient-rich wastewater from the ponds to irrigate their olive tree orchard.
