As a prelude to tagging studies on pink shrimp (Pandalus jordani) or other laboratory studies, basic information was needed to establish criteria necessary to hold shrimp in aquariums with minimum mortality. A one-year study was conducted at the Fish Commission Laboratory in Newport to obtain data on these requirements. The objective was to design aquariums suitable for holding shrimp, determine the optimum levels of shrimp density, water temperature and salinity needed to maintain minimum mortalities, and describe other factors related to maintaining shrimp in an artificial environment. The results of these findings would not only benefit laboratory work but would be of value in field work. (from the Introduction, p.1)
