In this photo taken July 14, 2011, Adian Zettell, Blue Oasis Pure Shrimp head scientist, holds up an adult shrimp at the company's farm in Las Vegas. The shrimp are grown in artificial ponds splayed across a temperature controlled room, which are expected to grow half a million pounds of shrimp a year, enough to fuel Las Vegas' insatiable all-you-can-eat-shrimp habit for about a week, according to some estimates.
