Abstract
Cold or tempurate weather limits the location and timing of shrimp farming. If Kona Bay Marine Resources can develop a cold-tolerant, disease-resistant shrimp, U.S. farmers will be able to significantly increase production by growing larger shrimp and reducing crop loss from disease. Ultimately, this will lead to increased production and profitability for U.S. shrimp farmers and reduced reliance on foreign imports. The purpose of this project is to develop shrimp families that are not only resistant to Taura Virus, but may also be grown year-round or in climates that normally do not support shrimp culture.
