Floridians are lucky they have one of the largest US shrimp culturing facilities right in their own backyard.

All Natural Florida Cultured Sun Shrimp Offered Directly to Consumers to Help Stave Off Food Shortages

  (UNITED STATES, 5/11/2020)

One of the biggest lessons for America during the Covid-19 outbreak is the dependence on foreign countries for critical supplies. Seafood has long been one of the most threatened supplies because the US imports around 90% of its seafood.

There is no reason Americans should be so reliant on imports for something as basic as seafood. Americans do have the ability to produce their own. It is better, safer and more secure. American Mariculture (AMI) is stepping up its efforts to ensure fellow Floridians continue to have access to high quality shrimp…Sun Shrimp®.

American Mariculture's facility is fully integrated and includes an onsite genetic breeding center, a hatchery, grow-out greenhouses, packing plant, lab and support facilities.

AMI has been working hard to give America an alternative and increase the domestic seafood supply. Operating its state-of-the-art shrimp culturing facility on Pine Island, on the Southwest Coast of Florida, AMI has been in business for 7 years and has grown into one of the largest shrimp growers in the USA. Home of Sun Shrimp®, all natural, chemical & preservative free and sustainably grown shrimp are preferred by top chefs nationwide, but now that most restaurants are closed, lots of extra Sun Shrimp® are available. Rather than storing them, AMI is now allowing consumers to buy direct from its farm.

Sun Shrimp are 100% natural. They are cultured without the use of any chemicals, medicines or preservatives.

Sun Shrimp® are unique in America. “Since most shrimp available in the US are frozen imports, we Americans have forgotten what a real fresh and chemical free, antibiotic free and preservative free shrimp tastes like” says Robin Pearl, President of American Mariculture, Inc., further stating: “Our shrimp are hatched, cultured and packed all on the same location and this gives us full control and traceability of our shrimp. Harvested shrimp are packed by our fully HAACP certified packing plant and shipped to our customers within hours of harvest.” Available year round, Sun Shrimp® are America’s answer to reduce our dependence on foreign imports and improve our domestic food security.

The onsite farm store is open Monday through Friday from 11AM to 6PM. It features fresh shrimp daily and, when they run out, have lots of frozen ones available as well. You can purchase shrimp whole, de headed or peeled and de-veined. Prices range from USD 12 to USD 14 per pound. All Sun Shrimp® are packed in 1.5 and 5 pound containers.

Sun Shrimp® are also available online. AMI can ship a minimum order of 5 pounds anywhere in the US with UPS overnight shipping. When shipping overnight, Sun Shrimp® are packed in a Styrofoam cooler with gel packs.

"We do everything we can to make sure our shrimp arrive in perfect condition", Pearl says: ”Remember, these are our babies and we take great pride in growing them. We don’t want that effort to be for nothing.”

During this time of national crisis, new opportunities to change course and improve options will arise. Once Americans try some of their locally grown clean and delicious Sun Shrimp®, they too will realize how fantastic it really is to have their own supply of shrimp right in the USA. Sun Shrimp® are born and raised by Americans for Americans.

After harvest, Sun Shrimp are quickly graded and processed for shipment all across North America.
