Shrimp Farming


World shrimp farming has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and much needed foreign trade and hard currency income in many countries. However, the industry is plagued with disease and water quality problems which have become the major obstacles to the future of shrimp farming.

Shrimp Farms and Shrimp Hatcheries lack defenses against rampaging Protozoa, Fungi and Bacteria, with Viral Diseases posing the greatest threat. Hundreds of researchers in dozens of countries and thousands of shrimp farmers are seeking new technologies to control disease and improve production.

Envirolyte Industries has solved the problems by developing the world’s most advanced method of shrimp farming which is used primarily in Malaysia, Thailand, China and India.

The process begins with treatment of the Shrimp Pond Water with Anolyte to eliminate all viruses, bacteria and other harmful micro-organisms.
The initial disinfection of Shrimp Pond Water with Anolyte and daily disinfecting of freshly added water controls the problems of disease.

During the past 3 years, test results in Malaysia and Thailand document a shrimp survival rate of over 90%.

The shrimp growth cycle has been shortened from 120-160 days to 110 days with much larger physical size of the shrimp and an increased production rate of 3 to 4 tons per hectare, versus previous harvests that averaged only 1.5 tons per hectare.

In summation, the Envirolyte process:

  1. Totally eliminates the use of antibiotics providing control of Viral and Bacterial Diseases in the grow-out phase of Shrimp Farming.
  1. Provides ideal quality water for Shrimp Farming, with control of pH and algae growth.
  1. Increases the shrimp survival rate to over 90%.
  1. Provides better feed conversion, increased assimilation and much larger physical size of the shrimp.
  1. Reduces the Shrimp Growth Cycle to 110 days.
