Prawn Stars


Author(s):
Abstract:
Some farmers in North Carolina are switching from traditional crops to prawn aquaculture. Joe Thompson made the switch after he got injured and could not maintain a tobacco farm. Organizations like the Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA and the Golden Leaf Foundation are helping area farmers transition from tobacco farms. The farming of prawns yields a high profit with a low cost of labor and many area restaurants are eager to prawn’s on their menus.
