Texas-based aqua-tech company, NaturalShrimp, Inc., has entered into a twelve million postlarvae (PL) shrimp annual contract with Sea Products Development, LLC (SPD), a worldwide supplier of selectively-bred, fast growing, and disease-free shrimp postlarvae and broodstock.
NaturalShrimp will deliver up to one million PLs per month. Continuous shipments of PLs for regular stocking in the NaturalShrimp, Inc.’s La Coste, Texas, facility will begin in February 2020.
Tom Untermeyer, Chief Technology Officer of NaturalShrimp, commented: “Year-round weekly shrimp production requires stocking PLs in our nursery tanks on a regular year-round basis. This contract with SPD can provide NaturalShrimp on a regular basis with healthy PLs that have been selectively-bred with the capacity for rapid growth under intensive bio-secure systems.”
