US - While others suffered in drought-like conditions, shrimp crops were thriving in Kentucky.

Freshwater shrimp farmers have found an alternative to tobacco and a future with a lot of growth potential. One shrimp farmer took his catch of the day to the Lexington Farmer's Market for the first time.
