I used to have a pair who would lay eggs every two weeks. Remember they are hermaphroditic, so any pair will do (if they like each other). If you caught the shrimp when it was about the release the babies (you can tell when it's about to happen) and put it in a small tank, you could collect them easily. I don't know what's involved in raising them to salable age, but I think they are pelagic for up to month, so it would be non-trivial. Probably lots of tiny foods and frequent water changes.
