Ohio—Video—Crowd Funding for Shrimp Farm


Shrimp News: For those of you that are not familiar with “crowd funding”, it’s a way of funding projects through the Internet by soliciting small amounts of money from a large number of people.  In this one-minute video and the text that accompanies it, Gary Beatty seeks $350,000 in crowd funding for his Inland Shrimp Company.  He offers investment opportunities from $5 to $1,000.  So far his pitch has not attracted any takers.


Beatty writes: “We are dedicated to providing consumers with the healthiest, freshest, sustainable shrimp, raised without harmful chemicals or the destruction of native habitats or the depletion of natural shrimp stocks due to overfishing.”


It will be an environmentally friendly, indoor shrimp farm that uses patented technology to naturally and sustainably raise saltwater shrimp without the need for hormones, steroids or antibiotics.  We will be able to produce ten times as much shrimp in two-thirds of the space that a traditional shrimp farm would use, and we will use less water.   We’ll dramatically reduce our carbon footprint by locating our facility close to our customers.  We’ll convert an old factory or abandoned warehouse—ideally in a depressed, inner city setting—from an eyesore into a job and tax producing entity.


What will I do with your money?  I’ll secure and renovate a building, install our patented equipment (tanks, water filtration and computer controlled automatic feeding system) and buy feed and postlarvae for the first crop.
