Our quality: better than "Bio"!

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.

- No control over the quality of the production water (eg, pesticides from agriculture)

- Deterioration of coastal regions.
- By secondary pathogens (eg seabirds, other marine animals) diseases are dragged into the breeding
- a high use of antibiotics is necessary.
- Despite everything, production losses of well over 50% remain the norm.

- Often antibiotics are used, which are banned in Europe for a long time.
- For excavation of earth basins natural mangrove forests are often cleared.

- After pearling and decommissioning of the lagoons they are loaded with chemicals and contaminated for decades.

 

Fishery

The shrimp fishery is undertaken by trawling in the open sea. Yet again, there are disadvantages:
- Basis marine pollution

- Uncontrolled bycatch

- Dependency on season and regimentatione

Conclusion: Animal breeding in natural environment is often equated with "Bio", but, in the case of shrimp farming it is anything but environmentally sound.

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

- Independent of weather conditions

- Independent of location
- Precise control of all water parameters and therefore ideal stocking conditions for the animals

- Production under EU and national regulations

- HACCP, ISO, ACC, Bio certification

- Regular checks of the density

- No use of antibiotics and pesticides

As yet there is no bio seal for circulatory systems, because it is not yet approved by the relevant associations. Still our breeding principle is much closer to the so called "bio"ideal than the traditional shrimp farming and fisheries.
