ECOshrimp, a shrimp industrial farming solution company, has announced the successful completion and stocking of its industrialized model. This state-of-the-art commercial prototype includes a 100m3 tank equipped with innovative filtration and life-supporting units.
It marks a step towards advancing sustainable shrimp farming and the upcoming establishment of the first industrial farms in Europe and North America.
According to a press release from the company, “The 8-metre diameter tank is specifically designed for growing shrimp at high densities, boasting a remarkable production capacity of over 15kg/m3 before harvest. This achievement is attributed to the incorporation of a proprietary shelving system, enhancing tank surface area and employing other innovative mechanisms to efficiently maintain shrimp in high densities.”
Dr. Eran Hadas, chief technology officer of ECOshrimp, said this development is a significant milestone for the company.
“This achievement not only showcases our dedication to pushing the boundaries of technology in shrimp farming but also positions us for the next crucial step of constructing a full-scale commercial shrimp RAS,” said Hadas.
The operation of the industrialized model shows the company’s progression toward an end-to-end solution for the specific needs of shrimp.
