Definition of New Mexico shrimp

Shrimp are commonly eaten decapod crustaceans in coastal cities outside of New Mexico, and usually made available in New Mexico from nearby Texas. However, New Mexico shrimp was developed by New Mexico State University, well-known for its agricultural prowess since its early 1800s horticultural developments on the New Mexico chile pepper. New Mexico shrimp is farm-raised on a humane diet of cottonseed, in a ecologically responsible manner, while still providing plenty of clean water space to ensure clean shrimp. NMSU has developed the New Mexico Shrimp Company to encourage further development.
