Brief History of Eco Shrimp
"Items for sale" top
Eco-shrimps grow well with inventive use of soil, water and wind. Farming methods have been established based on milkfish farming, with its hundreds of years of history, with adaptations for shrimp.
Before stocking the pond with shrimp larva, the soil should be tilled so that the water plant gangang will grow. When the plant ferments, plankton thrive and supply food for the shrimp. In the shrimp pond, oxygen is supplied by milkfish swimming freely in the water. Around three Eco-shrimps per square meter grow along with other shrimp, fish and crabs that enter the pond from the sea with the tide . After stocking the pond with shrimp larva, no synthetic feed or antibiotics are used. In other words, the shrimp farming is completely eco-friendly.
The harvested shrimps are transferred to a collection point for quality checks and graded. They are then brought to a processing plant within 24 hours to be sorted , washed, processed and frozen. As repacking or refreezing is not required, no chemical substances to stop change of color or to maintain water are applied Eco Shrimp is always tasty and the firmness and crispness of the meat are maintained.
