Description

When you think of a marine environment, what do you picture?

Wetlands, possibly; coastal shores, perhaps. When you think of a shrimp farm, what do you picture?

Some folks who know a thing or two about aquaculture might say any marine or freshwater environment will do. Bart Reid, one of the founders of the Permian Sea Shrimp company, is here to tell you otherwise.

Shrimping West Teas is the story of that business and the history of the harebrained notion that farming shrimp is possible in the West Texas desert. Spanning twenty years of successes and failures, Reid captures the quintessential West Texas entrepreneurial spirit, tallies the unique environmental factors that made this possible, and depicts the motley crew of businessfolks, scientists, and schemers who were part of the tale.
