Facility

 

Our growout location in the desert of Southern California, far from the ocean, is an ideal biosecure location where we utilize pathogen-free water from deep wells.

 

Larvae are reared on proprietary live artemia and biosecure dry diets of the highest quality. Post Larvae from pl 15 may be available seasonally by special arrangement.

 

Our facility is designed to accommodate significant production allowing us to satisfy demand among some of the largest hatcheries and farmers worldwide.

 

This location also serves as an excellent point of origin for global shipments with direct cargo flights from Los Angeles to virtually every location worldwide. Expedited transit times result in healthier shrimp.

Our shipping specialists will make all the necessary arrangements and provide the documentation required for importation. A Health Status Report prepared by the State of California accompanies each shrimp shipment certifying its SPF Status.
