Production and harvest
To carry out our shrimp production process, we have carefully selected the location of our farming farms and the method to maximize the efficiency of the rearing.
In the larvae laboratory stage, tanks of 8 to 15 tons capacity are used, where we sow the nauplii and then move on to the fattening stage where the shrimp grow between 10 to 20 grams.
The larval phase lasts from 20 to 22 days and begins after the eggs previously fertilized and released by the female, hatch and the nauplii hatch, until reaching the post-larval stage, where the animal no longer transforms. it just grows.
Process in pools
Feeding is very important for the entire harvest cycle, as well as taking the parameters of water, temperature and oxygen, which allows us to know the evolution of the shrimp.
Maintaining water quality is an essential part of shrimp aquaculture, so culture ponds must be washed and drained frequently.
When the shrimp production is collected, the pool is vacated and completely dried, letting it rest, until the earth is cracked, since the best disinfectant is the sun. Before being filled again, the bottom is raked so that the soil is oxygenated and it is fertilized by incorporating sodium carbonate and hydroxide, to act as disinfectants and fertilizers.
Compliance highest standard in the industry
Aqualinter S.A. is committed to satisfying the current global demands in the constant change of quality and food safety. That means that we are constantly updating ourselves on the well-known Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) program and its requirements, which we comply with 100%.
An important part of our processes is the annual review of each of our suppliers and the identification of areas of vulnerability or deficiencies to identify and seek an improvement of the process and seek its improvement. In the review we include the areas of raw material sourcing, processing, labeling, storage and handling.
Control processes carried out from our beginnings to the present.
We work hand in hand with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of production processes.
