tru Shrimp - A more sustainable aquaculture process to provide the world with healthy Shrimps

tru Shrimp is the first commercial-scale, shallow-water indoor shrimp farming technology in the United States. The solution produces superior-quality shrimp through a developed and patented land-based shrimp aquaculture technology. Shrimp grown with this method are traceable, sustainable, and antibiotic-free. By combining disruptive aquaculture technologies with operational expertise, tru Shrimp is capitalizing on shifting market paradigms to disrupt the U.S. shrimp market. ​ Collectively referred to as Tidal Basin™ technology, tru Shrimp deploys three existing patents, one pending patent, and three to-be-filed patents that far exceed the performance of traditional RAS technology to create the most stable and efficient shrimp growing environment in the world. The solution aims to produce the highest quality, most sustainable shrimp in the world using the technological capabilities and overall business model developed within the company.
