Hi Jeby
Sorry I don’t know the name or where you can get them but; I was net jumping a few days ago.
I started reading US patent applications ( as you do)
Amongst them was an application by a US fishery scientist for an intensive cultivation system for prawns/shrimps etc
Broadly speaking, as I understand it.
Stackable boxes on an inclined plane to give a variation in water depth.
Now I am in no way encouraging you to infringe this patent but.
There was a wealth of data about optimum temp,salinity,ph,growth rates etc....... Which is in the public domain.
Five minutes with your favorite search engine.
