A vast majority of shrimp comes from overseas.

But.....some of it is raised right here in the listening area.

Hoosier Shrimp Farm is near Walkerton.

Shane Troike and his wife began in 2013.

They were holding down jobs in the Indianapolis area and wanted to come

home so they decided to raise shrimp.......

The shrimp is raised in indoor tanks.......and served fresh to the customer.

Troike says his shrimp has a sweeter taste and firmer texture than what comes

from overseas.....because of the carefully monitored conditions he keeps in his

six huge tanks.

The shrimp farm is on 775 North in Starke County........kind of between Walkerton

and Hamlet.
