A husband and wife team is changing how we think about access to fresh saltwater seafood here in the Midwest.
Fresh Shrimp in Indiana?
So, it is possible to get fresh shrimp in the middle of Indiana? Yep! RDM Shrimp is an indoor saltwater shrimp farm located in Fowler. Founded in 2010, RDM Shrimp is a pioneer in the state’s growing aquaculture industry. In fact, they even offer guidance for other prospective shrimp farmers.
A Delicate Balance
Owners Darryl and Karlanea maintain a delicate environment without the use of antibiotics or hormones – a task that keeps them busy but helps keep the shrimp healthy. They say the ecosystem created by their indoor system replicates the shrimps’ natural environment without the negative aspects, like pollution.
