Specific shrimp feed requires specific shrimp genetics. Hendrix Genetics in Ecuador……country where specificity in shrimp failed once before.

Similar marketing ploy to what we had with Marine Harvest International shrimp division back in the mid 1990’s. Sell the seed and feed, support with grow-out. Receive final product, brand and export. Ours was Xcellent Brand at Empress International

Prawnmaster will show on Sunday post and after ruminating on Beyond Meat scientific meetup…
