After passing a successful inspection by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department at its newly constructed Texas production facility, the Company continued the process of regular stocking of postlarvae (PL) shrimp with the next PLs arriving on March 3 for acclimation and stocking in four nursery tanks. When ready, the shrimp from the nursery tanks will gravity flow into adjacent grow-out tanks where they will stay until gravity flowing into the facility’s harvest tank.

This regular stocking will allow year-round weekly production. In addition, the Company has completed construction of the facility’s 40 shrimp grow-out tanks and support systems well in advance of transferring shrimp from the previously installed nursery tanks into the grow-out tanks.

NaturalShrimp Iowa includes three separate facilities located in the cities of Webster City, Blairsburg, and Buckeye. Each of these facilities contain the tanks and the necessary support systems for raising shrimp once the Company has replaced the existing filtration systems with NaturalShrimp patented filtration equipment. The Company has aggressively begun this conversion process and expects to begin stocking its first PLs in nursery tanks in Iowa on March 24.
