Florida—Three Short Videos—Florida Organic Aquaculture

 

On May 7, 2014, Florida Organic Aquaculture (FOA), the largest recirculation shrimp farm in the USA, celebrated its grand opening in Fellsmere, Florida.  FOA is housed in an 180,000 square foot (roughly the size of 3½ football fields) facility.  Shrimp are grown in the energy-efficient system without any chemicals or preservatives.  It plans to produce and market 1.1 million pounds of fresh—never frozen—shrimp a year.   The first harvest is scheduled for June 2014.  Once the farm is completely built out, it will generate more than 500 jobs.
