Add Latvia to Your List of Countries with Shrimp Farms


Gints Dzelme ( of MERE SHRIMP FARMS in Latvia, reports: I would like to share the following information with the international shrimp farming community.  Since May 2014, we have successfully run a pilot, intensive, indoor shrimp farm in Riga, Latvia.  When we are fully operational, we hope to produce two metric tons of Penaeus vannamei a year.  We have already received our second shipment of PLs and a third shipment is scheduled to arrive in December 2014.  We are using 100% water recirculation technology with bioflocs.  In December, we hope to harvest three hundred kilos of 25-30-gram shrimp.  You can find some pictures and videos of the farm on our Facebook page.  There is also a five-minute video of our nursery tanks on YouTube.


In the near future we are going to expand our network of shrimp farms to Berlin, Germany; London, England; Vienna, Austria; and Warsaw, Poland—and welcome investors from other countries.
