Shrimpin' For A Cause

Jean Claude Frajmund has found a new way to farm raise shrimp, ecologically, healthfully and with a whole new business model: he hires young people who have seen a variety of hard times and are now ready for a second chance, through ACCES-VR, a New York state vocational rehabilitation organization. “I don’t care what they did,” says Jean Claude. ”When they see the shrimp grow from little babies, their eyes light up with pride.” The young men have turned their lives around since coming to work for ECO Shrimp.
