Stoughton, MA, Company Growing Shrimp
March 19, 2013
Boston Globe: A shrimp grows in Stoughton. Actually, it’s more like 1,500 pounds of them.
Miles from the ocean, in a nondescript industrial park, Pacific white shrimp are frolicking in 82-degree purified Atlantic seawater and getting plump on special feed. It’s warm in the room that houses 5 big open tanks. That’s the way these babies like it, and James Tran and Peter Howard, the masterminds behind Sky 8 Shrimp Farm, are determined to give them what they like. In turn, Tran and Howard hope to reap tremendous rewards when the shrimp are harvested and sold; they’re expecting their first crop this month and already have plans to expand.
