An Early Start on Garlic Shrimp
I've eaten so many shrimp in my life but I never really learned about the process by which their farmed for wholesale until watching this. Here are some things about shrimp and shrimp farming that I now know:
Fish can jump pretty high, not gracefully, but high (relative to their body size). When half of your body is tail you can really generate some force by flipping it.
Fish (at least those farmed in Asia) are fed a LOT of garlic and tamarind.
Tilapia will naturally purify sea water by eating thee plankton in it. They will of course poop a lot into that same water so you're not out of the woods yet on that front.
If you've been with the newsletter a while you know I love me a good How It's Made video. My God, what a resource, hit after hit after it. I think I'd actually be starstruck if I ever met the narrator.
