The owners of Seajoy™ helped found the Global Aquaculture Alliance, a worldwide organization dedicated to advancing environmentally and socially responsible aquaculture.
The primary elements of our sustainable shrimp farming practices include:
• Closed Cycle Selection
We only use shrimp that are native to the region in our hatcheries, so we avoid introducing shrimp from other regions into our ponds.
• Recirculated Water
We use a unique recirculating biofiltration system in our hatchery. This allows us to minimize the amount of sea water we use. And prior to returning any water to the sea, we sterilize it to avoid introducing any pathogens.
• Antibiotic Free
We do not use any antibiotics or any substances that are prohibited for use in aquaculture.
• Environmental Awareness
We promote a culture of environmental awareness among all our employees.
• Low Stocking Densities
We stock our shrimp ponds at very low densities, minimizing the amount of organic sediment.
• Mangrove Forestation
We have our own mangrove nursery that allows us to conduct a large scale mangrove forestation program.
• Environmental Adherence
We follow all environmental laws and regulations of the countries where we farm shrimp.
• Minimal Use of Resource
We minimize the use of power and water in all our farming and processing operations.
We are constantly trying to improve our feed conversion.
