This Golden LEAF grant will facilitate the expansion of prawn farming in North Carolina. Already, North Carolina farmers produce more than 25,000 pounds of prawn annually. It is estimated that in the next three years, prawn production will more than double, creating hundreds of thousands of dollars of additional income for farmers. Golden LEAF funds will support examination of issues related to increasing prawn production such as how to reach additional markets using live haul techniques and development of a prawn nursery.
