Seadex Represents Sureerath Prawn Farm in the USA

 

Seadex, LLC—located in Orinda, California, USA—has created the “Sustainable Shrimp Initiative (SSI)”, a program that promotes farmers whose practices emphasize excellence in all phases of shrimp production.  The program has established a pond-to-plate supply chain that allows customers to know how their shrimp is produced.  Seadex collaborates with the Monterey Bay Aquarium and is committed to sourcing shrimp rated as Green or Yellow by Monterey Bay’s Seafood Watch Program.  The standards through which the Seafood Watch ratings are generated include attention to effluent, habitat, chemical use, feed use, disease outbreaks, production data and sources of farm stocks.

 

Located in Chanthaburi, Thailand, Sureerath Prawn Farm—an organic, recirculating shrimp farm—has 133 ponds on a 224-hectare site.  Each month it harvests about 30 ponds, which yield approximately 120 metric tons of whole shrimp, making its annual production about 1,500 metric tons.  It has a hatchery, and a feed mill that will soon be producing a new type of feed in partnership with Ridley Corporation in Australia.  No drugs or chemicals are used at any point in Sureerath’s production process, and its shrimp is marketed at some of the finest restaurants in Europe and Asia.  Sureerath is also a founding member of the East Asian Organic Shrimp Farmers Association.

 

Shrimp from the Sustainable Shrimp Initiative’s farms are marketed through a web-based platform established by ShrimpTrader.com.
