Leading Supplier with Leading Technology

Since 2014, American Penaeid Inc. has been pioneering the shrimp industry with unique and intense genetic testing. With on-site geneticists and DNA testing, our shrimp are undeniably healthier and more sustainable than any others.

APE and SPF Certified Shrimp

We took the practices that have been thriving in Ecuador and turned them into a worldwide reality. Ecuador focused on creating APE (All Pathogen Exposed) shrimp versus the more traditional SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) shrimp. This process has caused their market to thrive and grow continuously. At API, we took this thriving idea and built on it.

While Ecuador’s APE stocks are doing well, because they are not SPF, they cannot be exported everywhere. API’s US-based facility produces both APE and SPF certified shrimp, enabling us to ship them anywhere worldwide. Today, API is the worldwide leader in APE and SPF certified shrimp with proven results in growth and sustainability. Our leading technology research, and industry-leading genetics are dominating the industry.

Quality that’s Guaranteed

At API, we ensure that your shrimp will be exactly what you’ve asked for, and we guarantee that you will be satisfied. We proudly stand behind our shrimp and view customer satisfaction as our highest priority.
