Trū Shrimp partners with research organisation to boost shrimp sustainable aquaculture

  (UNITED STATES, 7/24/2018)

Trū​®​Shrimp Company has signed an agreement with Oceanic Institute of Hawai`i Pacific University to develop a nucleus shrimp breeding program in the United States.

As part of the deal, Oceanic Institute is to supply Pacific white shrimp breeding stock selected and developed exclusively for trū Shrimp in a bid to identify which of their breeding stock best perform in the firm’s patented production environment.

As a consequence, he highlighted that this assures trū Shrimp that our breeding stock will be disease free and have been raised under the highest of biosecurity standards. 

Dr. Bruce Paterson, Chief Technical Officer of trū Shrimp, said it is critical high-performing breeding stock are chosen and certified specific pathogen free since the company does not use antibiotics in its production systems. 

“Biosecurity of the supplier’s facilities and the health and growth capability of the breeding stock were high priorities during the selection of a shrimp brood stock supplier,” Paterson said. 

“Oceanic Institute was the first company in the world to receive the designation ‘specific pathogen free’. This means Oceanic Institute shrimp breeding stock are certified to be free of the nine major shrimp diseases recognized by the World Organization of Animal Health," he added.
In addition to supplying brood stock for the hatchery at the trū Shrimp Innovation Research Center, Oceanic Institute will supply post larvae shrimp for the initial stocking of the Balaton Bay Reef, which will be the largest shrimp production facility in the Midwest when it comes online later this summer.

For his part, Shaun Moss, Executive Director of Oceanic Institute explained they developed their shrimp breeding technology with funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with the intention to support a domestic shrimp farming industry, clarifying that many beneficiaries of this technology grow shrimp overseas.

“We believe the combination of trū Shrimp’s innovative production environment, coupled with Oceanic Institute’s breeding technology, will result in production efficiencies which will make trū Shrimp a leader in sustainable shrimp farming in the US and beyond,” Moss stressed.

Oceanic Institute of Hawai`i Pacific University is a not-for-profit research and development organization dedicated to marine aquaculture, biotechnology, and coastal resource management. Its mission is to develop and transferenvironmentally responsible technology to increase aquatic food production while promoting the sustainable use of ocean resources.

trū Shrimp, an affiliate of Ralco, is redefining shrimp aquaculture. The firm claims that its revolutionary technology and processes produce shrimp sustainably and predictably without use of antibiotics and with unequalled transparency and traceability.
