Shrimps love soap, its great bait for them, If ya dont believe me, go have a bath ion the river and they will be biting u everywhere. To make a shrimp trap, get a 2 litre coke bottle, cut off the top a little way down, Tie some soap into the bottomn of the bottle, Then put the cut off top part, upside down into the bottom section, then tie some string or fishin line onto it. Also put some holes in the bottle so it sinks. Throw the trap into a creek somewhere, leave it for a few hours, pull it in and presto, lots of shrimp. If ya dotn understand, ill do soem quick diagrams to show ya.
As for breeders, well I know round Newcastle they grow them on a massive scale, and they cost like $20 for 200+, maybe even cheaper. So surely they will be bred soemwhere round SA.
