Throughout the world, pond production of freshwater shrimp is usually based on culture of Marobrachium rosenbergii, which is native to the Indo-Pacific region. The tropical nature of the species hinders production in cooler climates. In Louisiana, the major constraints to production include cost and availability of post-larvae for stocking and temperature intolerance.
