?

Do you mind paying more for a captive raised organism that was not yanked from the ocean?

    We are not really pushing them, but we can sell them in our store now. The world's first commercially available captive reared harlequin shrimp.
    Grown and raised in our facility in Columbia Station
    At their current size they are $39.99 each
    We are not shipping them at this time. They are eating chocolate chip starfish and asterina starfish whenever we get any.

    We have a huge amount of money invested in this project and will probably never recoup our investment, but it was worth it for what we learned about culturing that we can apply to other species.

    We are working on training them to eat an alternative food.
