America's most popular and iconic seafood is really a cheap foreign import. Raising Shrimp paints the economic and medical perils of an outsourced food supply, and follows Ted, an engineer, and Andy, an ecologist, on a quest for a better shrimp.

 

In Texas, they find fishermen pushed from riches to rags by imports. In Belize, they find shrimp farmers striving for a natural balance with jungles and lagoons, but again globalization takes its toll, and the best farm collapses.

 

But back home, pioneering farmers harness the power of bacteria to grow shrimp inside a darkened warehouse without any waste. Encouraged, Andy and Ted see that Raising Shrimp this way offers hope for all.

The age of fish meat is here. Our hunger for seafood grows and grows but the seas are running out of fish. Currently over half the fish the world consumes comes from fish farms. But what exactly is farmed fish? Where does it come from, and how is it made? Two friends, a fish scientist and engineer, take a scientific voyage along the coast of Turkey to pull back the cover on modern fish farming. Along the way they discover the tragedy of Bluefin Tuna and the joy of carp.
