New E-Course available How To Start Your Own Prawn Nursery.

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.
