NOAA Photo Library Image - fish6284

Growth of white shrimp (Penaeus setiferus) over a six-week period in an artificial environment. These shrimp were "farmed' in a fertilized brackish water pond at the BCF Laboratory in Galveston. BCF scientists were working toward developing an economical, prepared food that will sustain rapid growth of shrimp in ponds.
