There are currently four inland shrimp farms operating in Arizona. Each of these farms is growing the Mexican white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei in brackish groundwater. The farms are also incorporating various levels of water reuse, growing additional crops of tilapia, date palms, olive trees or field crops. You are welcome to review the Power Point File posted below for additional information or view the photos posted below. The Shrimp-Olive site, linked below, reports the results of one of our joint research projects.
