Marine biologist Valeska Minkowski has started a shrimp farm called the Urban Seas Aquaculture in Greenville.
It’s been open for a few months.
She says they goal is to feed Americans’ appetite for shrimp and other seafood, without damaging coastal eco systems.
“We have our first batch growing right now and they’re almost at capacity, which is awesome. But we are just going to distribute to local farm to table restaurants that are interested and kind of build out customer base through them at first and then our second batch will be available to the general public,” said Minkowski.
She says the first batch will be ready to sell to local restaurants in the coming weeks.
