  1. Develop a business opportunity report for a high-health shrimp facility in Hawaii and Guam. The report will include: a preliminary business plan, system design and operating protocol for a modular marine shrimp broodstock and seed facility to be operated in Hawaii and/or Guam, estimated potential operating and capital costs and rates of return for selected species and levels of production and a determination whether other aquaculture crops can be marketed similarly in Hawaii and Guam.
  2. Preserve as many shrimp stocks as possible that are not presently contaminated by the IHHN virus. Toward meeting this goal, we will renovate shrimp holding facilities at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology’s Coconut Island laboratory.
