Commercially Superior Shrimp
Over the years, tiger shrimp have been disappearing as the pacific white shrimp (p. vannamei) continues to perform better for commercial suppliers. At API, we utilize p. vannamei broodstock that are both High Vigor and certified Specific Pathogen Free (SPF). This makes our shrimp superior because they are not only disease-free, they are also disease-resistant making them both healthier and stronger.
Our hearty, commercially-proven white shrimp endure a controlled exposure process that builds tolerance. These unique techniques not only meet the demands of the market, but enable us to set the highest standards of the industry.
Breeding to Survive
& Meeting the Demand
API’s intensive genetic program, unlike others, utilizes advanced DNA family selection. This virtually eliminates inbreeding and improves future generations’ growth and survival rates. The grow-out trials held at our high-density, bio-floc farm in Florida have revealed a 300% increase in survival with side-by-side comparisons to SPF-only shrimp.
We know that the demand for broodstock is constantly increasing, and our center allows us to select, quarantine, acclimate, and prepare up to 3,000 broodstock pairs daily for shipment.
Post Larvae: Shipping Millions Daily
API’s state-of-the-art hatchery has a capacity of 20 to 30 million Post Larvae (PLs) per month. The PLs are sold all over the United States and Europe, and we can exceed the needs of the current market to provide your business with the healthiest, strongest shrimp.
