Shrimp Farming Industry 
In conclusion, shrimp farming has become a success. Slowly, common problems, such as disease outbreaks and excessive use of land resources, are finding various solutions that include the use of recirculation systems, green houses, and raceways. Overall, regulatory constraints, temperate climate conditions, and labor will help control the industry. Soon, the shrimp industry will accelerate to its highest potential that will provide us economically, environmentally, ecologically, and socially sustainable shrimp supplies.
