Farming Shrimp in the Desert

shrimp.jpg

Fishermen harvest shrimp on the Gulf Coast. But what about growing shrimp... in the desert? A shrimp farming plant will open in North Las Vegas. The shrimp will be raised in giant tanks, then sold in Las Vegas and around the world. So how does it work - how do you grow shrimp in the desert? Can we localize more foods that way? And what are the benefits and downside of growing shrimp in a giant tank?
