Florida Organic Aquaculture For Sale


Florida Organic Aquaculture (FOA), which recently filed for bankruptcy, has retained Equity Partners HG to seek an investor, partner or buyer for its state-of-the-art, technology-driven shrimp farming operation.  Located on 100 acres in Southern Florida, FOA breeds, processes and sells all-natural shrimp for the USA domestic marke from a scientifically advanced, indoor, biosecure facility.


Florida Organic Aquaculture focused its research on alternative shrimp dietary approaches and developing successful cultivation processing techniques.  A water treatment methodology and emergency back-up devices maintain perfect growing conditions year round.  The Company’s technological advantages have eliminated the limitations faced by competitors allowing production yields of approximately 20 times more shrimp than traditional pen and pond farms.  These production methods enable faster growout, making it practical to sell shrimp that command up to twice the price of commodity sizes.  Finished products are currently sold directly to a tier-one grocery chain, seafood wholesalers and several prominent seafood restaurants.


To date, the company has had inquiries to create sister projects in California, Hawaii and Wyoming, as well as from Europe, China and the Middle East.  The Company is also developing a value-added component to leverage its shrimp and create additional revenue.


Hank Waida, a Managing Director at Equity Partners HG, says, “This is an excellent opportunity to invest in or purchase a state-of-the-art shrimp farming operation with infrastructure in place to quickly expand as needed.”  Equity Partners HG, formerly “Heritage Equity Partners,” based in Easton, Maryland, provides investment-banking services and has completed in excess of 400 engagements throughout the United States since 1988.
