Florida—Wood’s Fisheries’ Shrimp Farm


Wood’s Fisheries operates a shrimp farm in the Florida Panhandle and processes and markets Gulf shrimp.  Edward Wood, owner, says, “For five generations, our family has owned and operated Wood’s Fisheries.  It’s been 150 years since our company was founded, but our mission has never changed—to deliver the world’s tastiest shrimp.”


Located 20 miles inland, the farm got started in 2006 with a five-acre pilot project that quickly grew to 25 acres of ponds.  Now it has 150 acres of ponds and pumps saltwater into them from a well that’s 1,000 feet deep.  It does not discharge any water, does not use any chemicals or additives, and no motors boats are used on the ponds.


Wood’s Fisheries’ farmed shrimp has received a green rating from the Monterey Bay Aquarium and FishWise.
