100% Water Recycling System in Shrimp Production

Business Management

Located in Phetcfhaburi province, approximately 160km southwest from Bangkok, Ms. Nitaya’s eco-friendly shrimp farm covers about 320,000m2 with 6 cultivation ponds (completely covered with plastic sheets) of 0.5ha each.
Besides cultivation ponds, it also has a nursery where larvae are grown until they weight 1g, which is when they are ready to be moved into cultivation ponds. 

Ms. Nitaya’s farm grows Vannamei shrimp without using antibiotics and production is approximately of 160-170 tons/year harvested all year round.

EMRO Asia, our partner in Thailand, is working in joint project with Ms. Nitaya to establish a safe and enviromental friendly production system applying EM Technology.
