No Growth Hormones or Antibiotics
Russ Allen sustainably raises white shrimp at ECA (Environmentally Conscious Aquaculture) Farms in Okemos, Michigan. A veteran shrimp farmer, Russ's shrimp are tank-hatched, given no growth hormones or antibiotics, and grow in salt water in a bio-secure system.
The Shrimp feed is fish meal free, however it is not organic or GMO-Free. Aquaculture is such a small market it is difficult to get organic and GMO-free feed. However, this is the healthiest, most sustainably raised shrimp and it is locally available!
"Raised in indoor heated tanks, the farm is kept at 80 degrees," says Russ. "All of the operations waste is recycled through a bio-filtrated system, so there is no effluence into the enrichment."
We currently have shrimp available frozen, with shell on and head off. They come in approximately one pint biodegradable containers. Enjoy shrimp cocktail knowing your appetizer comes from a farmer who prides himself in having an environmentally conscious aquaculture environment.
