NaturalShrimp’s hydrenesis technology installed in Indiana RAS farm

July 14, 2022  By RAStech staff

NaturalShrimp Inc. announced it has successfully installed its proprietary Hydrenesis technology at a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) in Indiana.

Hanilu Farms, founded in 2017, produces barramundi at its indoor RAS facility in Cutler, Ind. The facility consists of 34 tanks and produces more than 900 kilograms of live fish per week, all year round. Hanilu Farms founder, Lealand Meador, worked with NaturalShrimp, providing research, data collection, automation and improvements to the hydrenesis technology.

Hydrenesis is a water treatment technology proprietary to Natural Shrimp. It is said to affect water chemistry and elevate water quality in support of scaling hatchery and nursery systems. According to a press release, the company recently completed a trial at the independent RAS testing centre, Marineholmen RASLab, in Norway evaluating how hydrogas and electrocoagulation technologies compared with the traditional use of a biofilter when raising salmon. Based on the results of the study, NaturalShrimp expects technology licensing opportunities to salmon and finfish producers worldwide.


“Our success with our early aquaculture partner Hanilu Farms using hydrogas technology supports the significant potential for commercial licensing of the technology as an additional revenue stream,” said Gerald Easterling, CEO of NaturalShrimp. “The ability to increase health and survival rates in commercial facilities opens our opportunity to additional worldwide seafood markets, including salmon, barramundi, and other freshwater fish… We are incredibly thankful for Hanilu Farms’ input as they utilized our technology, and we look forward to working with them as both companies scale operations.”
