NATURALSHRIMP CONTINUES STOCKING PROGRAMME
NaturalShrimp continues stocking programme. NaturalShrimp, Inc., the aquaculture Company that has developed and patented the first commercially-operational RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture System), continues to stock shrimp in both the Texas and the Iowa production facilities in preparation for regular weekly production.
NaturalShrimp Iowa includes three separate facilities located in the cities of Webster City, Blairsburg, and Buckeye. The Company has installed its patented filtration technology in a portion of the Blairsburg facility to serve as a nursery and in a portion of the Webster City facility to serve as a grow-out and harvest facility. The Company stocked the first batch of post larvae (PL) shrimp at the nursery in Blairsburg on March 24, 2021. The smaller nursery tanks provide a more controlled environment for acclimating the initial PL shrimp to the facility’s water temperature and salinity while still providing enough volume for the smaller shrimp to grow for later transfer to the larger grow-out tanks located in Webster City.
The first batch of shrimp stocked at a new facility is mainly used to verify proper operation of the system prior to regular stocking. The system performed as expected and the Company successfully transferred the shrimp to the Webster City grow-out facility on May 18th and May 19th with virtually no visible mortality caused by the transfer.
The Company continues to stock PL shrimp in the La Coste, Texas facility on a regular basis and plans to begin full weekly production with sales by the 4th quarter of 2021. The following link shows a video taken on May 22, 2021 at the La Coste, Texas facility:
