In the modern practice of industrial shrimp cultivation in open lagoons in Southeast Asia there is a number of significant issues. These include the need to introduce modern water treatment systems, to enhance the biological safety of lagoons and prevent shrimp diseases. Other issues are energy-efficient aeration systems, circulation systems and wastewater treatment. The Vietnamese company aims to launch and then scale up the innovative business in the super-intensive cultivation of white leg shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei / Penaeus vannamei) in saline water: a mixture of sea and fresh water. Super-intensive shrimp cultivation includes planting density of more than 200-250 pieces of shrimp per square meter or more. Thus, the main issue is the solution of such problems as biosafety and water treatment. In the process of cultivation, a closed cycle of water exchange or total absence of water exchange should be provided. We are interested in technologies of water preparation and treatment, waste processing and other elements of shrimp cultivation technology without the use of harmful chemicals. The company is interested in cooperation with partners that could supply technology and equipment, as well as technical assistance at the stage of launching shrimp production and the the stage of enterprise's reaching the required capacity. The company is going to start up a business on the south coast of Vietnam.
