The U.S. Marine Shrimp Farming Program is an integrated multi-state research program that continues to develop and transfer technologies, products and services necessary for domestic shrimp farming to become competitive in the world market. The long term goal is to partially offset the annual $3.2 billion trade deficit, to significantly expand the domestic shrimp industry, to create new opportunities for U.S. agriculture, and forge new markets for U.S. grain products and technology services.
Success in the United States requires high rate, high yield and high product quality production systems that are both environmentally and economically sustainable. The United States is a world leader and is highly competitive in terrestrial animal production systems. However, because no such integrated production system exists for marine shrimp, this program undertook the task of developing a world competitive shrimp production system, technology-by-technology and product-by-product.
The USMSFP, through the work of the seven Consortium institutions, has provided U.S.producers with direct access to reliable captive supplies of high health and genetically improved shrimp stocks and advanced disease diagnostic and treatment methods.
