    Black Tiger prawns pop in your mouth and are plump, sweet and juicy. The meat is firm and resilient and the flavor is mild and ocean-like.

    White prawns are a wild species of shrimp that inhabit the Indo-Pacific region and are not generally harvested from wild populations for widespread commercial distribution. Instead, White shrimp are grown in various aquaculture environments because the cost of production is but a fraction of that incurred by harvesting wild-stock. On its face, it would seem like the aquaculture harvest would relieve the ocean from unnecessary fishing pressures, but it still exerts its own environmental pressures and in a different direction. The waste from the shrimp aquaculture systems can be extremely damaging to the nearby environments that in comes in contact with, but it is very possible to shift to a more sustainable farming approach without much cost. Waste recycling and re-purposing can become an industry in its own right and the environmental damage can be relived.
