Before you begin, there are several aspects of growing shrimp that must be considered. First, certain to check for controlling regulations. Here in Missouri, m. Rosenbergii are on the Missouri Department of Conservation allowed species of shellfish (MO Allowed species). Other states have regulations you will need to check and licenses you will need to obtain.
Because we are growing the shrimp in backyard pools, there are legal liabilities that you really need to account for. Swimming pool owners know that the last thing they want happen is for a drowning to occur. “Attractive Nuisance”( See Article) refers to potentially harmful things that may attract children to explore and potentially be harmed, even killed. Most people know better than to store old freezers where children could hide and suffocate. But swimming pools and koi ponds present hazards as well. In our case, we use solar pool covers that are zip-tied and locked to prevent access to the water. An advantage of this is that not only are we denying unauthorized access, but are keeping the water warm, something the shrimp thrive in.
