96 Discussions from the Shrimp List
A Discussion Platform for the Shrimp Farming Industry

 The Shrimp List is a free, email-based, discussion platform for shrimp farmers that distributes information posted by one member of the list to all the other members of the list. Anyone can use the list to ask and answer questions, to keep participants up-to-date on a conference, to coordinate a project or to pass industry news around. You don't have to participate in the discussion. You can just sit back and read the messages that interest you.


The Shrimp List does not accept attachments, and when you post a message to the list, your email address is exposed. On March 18, 2017, the list had 1,742 registered subscribers.


The easiest way to get on The Shrimp List is to send an email to “shrimp-subscribe@yahoogroups.com”.  That’s it.  Just put the address where you would normally put someone’s email address, send the email with nothing else in it, and you will begin receiving all the postings to the list.


To post a message to the list, send your email to “shrimp@yahoogroups.com”, and to unsubscribe from the list, send your email to “shrimp-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com”.


The Shrimp List Webpage contains a database, searchable by member name, date and topic, of all the messages that have been posted to the site since its inception.
