Shrimp Farm Opens In Las Vegas

Today Ganix Bio Technologies opened a Shrimp Farm in North Las Vegas, that's right the gnome said a shrimp farm! It's the first of its kind in the United States. Around 90 percent of the shrimp eaten in Las Vegas come from Southeast Asia and China. "We consume more shrimp per capita in Las Vegas than anywhere else in the world -- 22 million pounds of it annually," said Greg Orman with Ganix Bio Technologies. The gnome loves this!!! This is a very green! Transporting shrimp or any food for that matter halfway around the world for us to eat is stupid. Industrial farming techniques will have to change dramatically for us to survive in the future. The North Las Vegas farmed shrimp will make it's restaurant debut at Mandalay Bay restaurants. Their maximum production will be 450,000 pounds a year, and Las Vegas consumes 22 million pounds annually. BUT THE GNOME THINKS ITS A GREAT START!!!
