The Shrimp Greenhouse is configured for replicated temperature studies. It is equipped with 18 (3500-liter) conical bottom tanks run through with either recirculating heat pumps and biofiltration or they can be converted for flow-through reservoir water. The system can run three different temperatures with three replicated tanks at each temperature.
This greenhouse also contains 12 (174-liter) square flat bottom research tanks maintained by heat pumps and bio-filtration. Five (1514-L) round flat bottom tanks are used as holding facilities and are controlled by floating heaters and bio-filtration. Heterotrophic production studies on both marine shrimp and tilapia are also conducted in this facility.
