Florida—Video—Florida Organic Aquaculture

 

 

This minute-and-a-half, high-definition video contains some good interior shots of Florida Organic Aquaculture’s shrimp farm, the largest recirculation shrimp farm in the USA (roughly the size of 3½ football fields).  The farm is putting the finishing touches on a hatchery and nursery and expects to produce over a million pounds of shrimp a year.

 

Steven Morris of Florida Organic Aquaculture says the company is trying to change the image of aquaculture.  “What we’re doing here is cutting edge technology.  We are a recirculating operation system.  We are not putting our old water back in the ocean.”  Morris says the initial business plan called for building four giant raceways.  Now the company is considering doubling that number, and other states, like Hawaii, have inquired about using its model.
