Eco-shrimp trade, started in April 1992, has developed through "face-to-face relationships including exchanges with producers. Eco-shrimps were certified as organic products in June 2002 by Naturland. In June, 2003 a local company was established to develop activities based in the production areas.
Eco-shrimps grow well with inventive use of soil, water and wind. Farming methods have been established based on milkfish farming, with its hundreds of years of history, with adaptations for shrimp.
Before stocking the pond with shrimp larva, the soil should be tilled so that the water plant ganggang will grow. When the plant ferments, plankton thrive and supply food for the shrimp. In the shrimp pond, oxygen is supplied by milkfish swimming freely in the water. Around 3 (three) Ecoshrimps per square meter grow along with other kinds of shrimp, fish and crabs that enter the pond from the sea with the tide. After stocking the pond with shrimp larva, no synthetic feed or antibiotics are used. In other words, the shrimp farming is completely Eco-friendly.
