ShrimpVet Works to Improve Industry

 

ShrimpVet has two laboratories in Vietnam that provide diagnostic services, environmental monitoring, training and postlarvae to the Vietnamese shrimp farming industry.  It is working with shrimp farming giant Minh Phu Seafood to try and improve the quality and productivity of the country’s shrimp farms.

 

A spokesperson for ShrimpVet said, “We are launching a social enterprise with more than 30,000 farmers so we can be of better assistance to them to improve their practices.  We will help them to check their postlarvae before they start, to choose better postlarvae, to connect with the feed mill, and to find the right feed for organic shrimp.  We also train them with better farming practices...not using pesticides, not using antibiotics, so that we can help them have their own international certification.”

 

ShrimpVet wants to establish eight to ten of labs across Vietnam.  “With our expansion we hope to reduce the time between identifying a disease and disseminating a viable solution, as well as reduce the time it takes to research and develop new farming techniques,” said the spokesperson.

 

With its current two labs, ShrimpVet’s revenues will surpass $1 million in 2017.
