NaturalShrimp Production Facility
Located outside of San Antonio, TX on 37 acres
NaturalShrimp replaced the 33,000 square foot Pilot Plant building located on 37 acres in La Coste. TX outside of San Antonio, TX that was destroyed by fire in March of 2020 with a new 40,000 square foot fully operational shrimp production facility shown in the banner above. The building is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Bill Williams (one of the original co-founders).
The La Coste, TX shrimp production facility contains twenty 2,000-gallon nursery tanks, forty 20,000-gallon growout tanks, two 10,000-gallon settling tanks, and one 20,000-gallon harvest tank for a total tank volume capacity of 880,000 gallons. In addition, NaturalShrimp converted an existing 8,000 square foot structure to serve as a water treatment plant for the new shrimp production facility.
NaturalShrimp also acquired the assets of a previous Barramundi indoor recirculating fish farm located in Iowa. This included the real property, equipment, tanks, rolling stock, inventory, permits, customer lists, contracts, and other such assets used in the operation of the business. These facilities provide 2,700,000 gallons of recirculating capacity and approximately 344,000 square feet.
The NaturalShrimp Production System will produce shrimp at a harvest size of eighteen to twenty-two, head-on shrimp per pound in a period of 24 weeks or less. NaturalShrimp currently purchases post-larval shrimp that are approximately ten days old (PL 10). However, NaturalShrimp is working to develop its own hatchery and genetic program to maximize growth and to control the supply and quality of PLs to each of its facilities. Each production system will be designed to produce fresh shrimp fifty-two weeks per year.
