A growing protion of our food today is labelled "Bio". This is even more true for delicatessen like shrimps or prawns! But at the same time consumers get more and more confused each day: They want to know what exactly means bio for a certain type of food?
Today a lot of organic bio-food is imported and consumers are often unable to verify whether the food really satisfies their demands. They generally prefer food which is produced on home soil and which quality is therefore controlled.
Mast and traditional fishing
The traditional shrimp farming in tropical countries is operated primarily in large open lagoons. The disadvantages are obvious:
- Climatic influences.
The shrimp fishery is undertaken by trawling in the open sea. Yet again, there are disadvantages:
Better: Closed circuits
We will breed our shrimps in a circulatory system. The shrimps will be raised in basins of different sizes in which the water will be constantly cleaned and oxygenated so that it can be utilized. So water will be in a circular flow and less than 1 percent must be changed daily. Moreover the basins are placed in closed buildings so they are independet from external pollution. For this reasons we will have rearing conditions, which correspond to a real "Bio" production:
- Absolutely clean water of tested quality without added antibiotics or growth enhancers
