We are still here..
4:15 pm est
Hard to believe after all the trials and tribulations we are going into a new year.
We dont have nearly as many farmers
left as we once did as many have moved on to other things..
The marketing of Freshwater prawn has proven difficult
and only the farmers who do a lot of marketing
2018 saw some of the farms raise some of the biggest
prown ever and as usual a fast sell out..
We are taking orders now for 2019 if you are interested in starting
your own freshwater prawn farm get in touch as we are also selling out fast and stock is limited.

New E-Course available How To Start Your Own Prawn Nursery.
8:40 am edt
We'll another prawn season is in the books and most of the prawn are residing in their new homes.
We still have a
few prawn left to go out but for the most part we have delivered most of our orders.
One of the biggest things that is
holding Freshwater prawn marketing and raising prawns back in the United States is the lack of nurseries. When farmers know
that they can get their prawn locally more farmers are willing to try prawn farming. When we started our nursery there were
2 farmers in the state of Virginia. Now we sell prawn to about 14 farmers in the state of Va and NC. We move between
200,000 and 300,000 juvenile prawn out to farms annually. This is not a get rich or work from home all the time business but
is a way to provide nice supplemental income if done right... Now notice last statement if done right. As you can see from
the past we have had fires and all kinds of learning experience after 6 years anything that can happen usually will so you
have to try to be prepared for anything. So that is why we are putting together this new training series on How to build a
freshater prawn nursery.. This will not teach you how to hatch prawn. it will not teach you how to raise them to full size
in tanks. This will teach you how to set up a nursey and to run your business for a few months and make money. It will be
a video series on setting up a nursery. How to raise the prawn and then how to deliver the prawn to your customers. So if
you would like a nice part time income check out our new video training page for more details.

Picking up the pieces
Well we are slowly making progress, We moved out all the juvenile prawn we could but we suffered
heavy losses. We were able to bring up enough Freshwater prawn from the hatchery in texas to satisfy just about all of farmers
orders that we had. Aquaculture of texas will be able to bring up more prawn in June to fulfill any remaing orders.
So email us if you need prawn. We will only have prawn for pick-up in Virginia.
