Shrimp is the most popular seafood in the United States, but here's an unsettling fact: 90 percent of the shrimp we eat has been imported, and less than 2 percent of that gets inspected by U.S. regulatory agencies. By purchasing shrimp grown in an indoor facility within the United States ensures you are purchasing the healthiest, freshest and most high-quality shrimp available to you.
Shrimp farming in Southeast Asia is not done the same way we farm our shrimp. Traditional Shrimp farming involves taking over wild mangrove forests destroying natural habitats and causing more carbon to be released into our atmosphere. Mangroves sequester 200x more carbon than rainforest!!
Trolling for Wild Caught Shrimp is very detrimental to sea life and the landscape of the sea floor. Large nets are dragged across the sea floor disturbing natural habitats and catching "Bycatch" which is all the unwanted sea life that is caught along with the shrimp. On average, 6 pounds of "Bycatch" are discarded back into the sea for every 1 pound of Shrimp. This results in nearly 63 billion pounds of dead, discarded sea life thrown back into the sea annually.
When walking the beach and waves come rolling in, have you ever noticed the foam that comes in with the waves? That foam is called 'Biofloc' and is natural bacteria used by nature to cleanse the water. We mimic this in our tanks to clean the water of shrimp waste and extra food particles. The only products that are added to our tanks are salt formulations, baking soda (to manage pH) and occasionally sugar (to manage the biofloc). Therefore, our shrimp are all-natural A.S.H free... Antibiotic / Steroid / Hormone free!!
