The hybrid striped bass (HSB) industry is the 4th largest aquaculture industry in the United States in terms of sales value, behind catfish, salmon, and trout. HSB is a cross between a female white bass (Morone chrysops) and a male striped bass (Morone saxatilis). HSB is also known as “”sunshine bass.”” The hybridization of the white bass and the striped bass makes HSB more tolerant to extreme temperatures and dissolved oxygen than either of its parents. There is potential for growth in production in Indiana and the Midwest because of the abundance of farm ponds and private lakes.

Structural changes in Midwest agriculture over the past two decades have resulted in a number of empty and unused farm buildings. Farmers therefore have been exploring alternative uses of livestock farm buildings for the production of other cash crops, including aquaculture products. In Indiana, Pacific White shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) production has attracted interest, and a number of small producers are investing in shrimp produc- tion in their farm buildings and other farm facilities. The producers are motivated by the fact that they could produce and market fresh (never frozen) high-quality shrimp products in these systems to compete with imported frozen shrimp.
