Don’t do it. The gov is trying to discourage it. Current shrimp farm owners are currently being required to convert 30% of their farms back to mangroves. Shrimp farming obliterates the natural ecology and destroys the lively hood of the locals who fish in the mangroves. There are documentaries on the hardships faced by locals when people come in and mow down mangroves to put up shrimp farms. Very few jobs that benefit locals are created in the shrimp industry.
Plus, after a few years of shrimp monoculture you will start running into problems, more diseases, etc. You will be forced to use more chemicals or shut down. When you do finally shutdown all that will be left is a barren wasteland, too salted for anything to grow for years. The locals will love you as well as madre tierra.
There are several salt fields North of Puerto Cayo where someone shrimped until diseases started ruining it all. Now they are just barren boxes carved into the coast.
