Just wanted to let everyone know that the owner of livebrineshrimp.com may have sold the business. I happened to run across a listing indicating the owner was selling the business to retire.

Does anyone know if it is still up and running? The real-estate was up for sale until June of 2017. Not sure if it sold or if the owner decided to keep going. Link to old real-estate posting below.

860 S Us Highway 1, Oak Hill, FL 32759

Thanks for the update. The site still seems to be taking orders, you sure it's closed?

I used to run shrimpstuff.com back in the day... it did pretty well - I had good working model with an aquaculture farm supplier out of Nevada; I would process the orders and support the customer, and he would drop-ship them for pickup by the customer. One day his automatic feeders stopped working and he lost like a million shrimp, and so we had to wind it down. It was a good model; I had a good ecommerce site up and running, and there was healthy cross-promotion from TONMO. I was sad to wind it down...

No idea if they are still open or not. I know sometimes sites will stay up after a business has shut down.

I am getting ready to order some shrimp in preparation for cuttlefish and wanted to know if anyone had placed an order with them in the last month or so.
