Sometimes you should just shut up.

That’s my advice to Dallas-based NaturalShrimp, a fledgling land-based shrimp farmer with production facilities in LaCoste, Texas.

The penny-stock company has been making lots of noise lately – as penny-stock companies do – about its patented land-based RAS shrimp farming technology that kills bacteria and removes other harmful substances from the water in which the shrimp are raised.

The company and its owners have gone through an estimated $34 million (€30.2 million) since it began in the early 2000s, according to an article in the San Antonio Express News, but it has produced very little shrimp.
