Well, I had meant to give you an update before now, but due to bad luck? I have lost some of my final pictures. I don't post pictures often enough to know what in the heck I'm doing, please bare with me! In May I stocked my small pond with freshwater shrimp (macrobrachium rosenbergii) juveniles, (60 day old). They have to breed in salt water, but when the babies reach post-larvae stage, they can be grown out in fresh water. I chose the macrobracium over others due to the location of the nursery (Ft.Worth). This was close enough for me to pick them up myself and save on delivery fees. Here is a picture of a 60 day old juvenile (sorry for the picture quality). This is a picture of one about 3 1/2 months old A batch caught with crawdad trap [/IMG] Another batch And the finished project, Gumbo! [/IMG] I fed a 32% protein sinking catfish feed. Due to warm weather I was able to harvest through the second week in October. I mainly did this to see IF shrimp would thrive here in Oklahoma. The main downfalls I had were, three turtles in the pond at the beginning of the project, the pond I used was uneven on the bottom making it difficult to use the seine for harvest. My crawdad trap worked great, but I needed more than one trap. Of the 1,000 I stocked I harvested around 700. They were small, meduim and large. Beginning in September I harvested the larger ones and threw the small ones back to grow more. Over all, the project was a success, I plan on doing it again next spring.
