The brine shrimp I'm familiar with typically grow to about a centimeter in size -- a third of an inch. Websearch will find information on growing them, if you're still interested. I have no idea how much they would or wouldn't taste like other varieties of shrimp, or how cost-effective this would be compared to getting tiny shrimp from (eg) a chinese grocery store.

Shrimp are low in calories, but pretty high in cholesterol, if I remember correctly.
