Don't tell me you are bringing some of those in? Don't they go for insane amounts of $$$?

How does he do it? It seems like a month or so after we see a picture of a new variety of shrimp for the first time, Michael Nadal has a zillion of them.

Does he have 100s of tanks, or does he have breeders all over the EU send him stuff to develop, or both? I'm supposing that he does this breeding and production gig full time...

After he cleaned up like he did at the Hanover Shrimp championships, I'll bet he sells most of his best stuff to Japan for top dollar for the forseeable future.

^^ Lex - a good breeder never tells his true secrets lol. I've tried asking him, trust me.

He's making a killing in Japan with those shrimp. They are willing to pay him such ridiculous amounts, he won't even sell me any. He's told me he has Japanese clients who fly in direct to pick their shrimp and fly back home. Can US shrimp keepers beat that? Probably not. lol

LOL. It's like when I lived in Lexington, KY they often sold some of the best varieties of horses to Saudis that would fly in on their own private jets, pick their horses and then fly them back. One of these guys even landed his plane on a highway, just because it was more convenient. He didn't mind the multi-thousand dollar fine as long as he got his horses.
