Kauai Shrimp is an aquaculture operation growing shrimp as a source of protein without the necessity of depleting wildstocks for human consumption.
Their farm and hatchery uses sustainable hydro- electric power to operate all electrical systems in the production of Kauai Shrimp. Well sourced, pristine, saltwater is filtered through the volcanic sub strata of the island for use in the shrimp ponds. Reusable polyurethane lined ponds enables continuous use of the same ponds without increasing our geographic foot print. Bio-fluc technology is utilized in the grow out farm that reduces the need for additional feed and decreases discharge frequency into our settlement basin.
Clams are being grown in the shrimp ponds and they filter the water decreasing the need for water exchange. The shrimp bi products provide an excellent source of nutrition for the clams in a symbiotic relationship. The clams also provide for another source of revenue for the company.
This October, join the Hawaii Seafood Council and Conservation International in celebrating Hawaiʻi Seafood Month, a month long event highlighting Hawai'i seafood and the fishers, restaurants, retailers, and seafood businesses committed to sustainable, local seafood and vibrant fishing communities across our paeʻaina.
