Featuring Atarraya Founder and CEO Daniel Russek, Trans American Aquaculture Adam Thomas, and American Penaeid Founder and CEO Robin Pearl, and moderated by SeafoodSource Executive Editor Cliff White, “The State of Shrimp Farming in the US” is available free for SeafoodSource Premium members and for USD 300 to non-members through the Complete Digital Ticket: Seafood Expo North America 2023.
The session was presented on Tuesday, 14 March, with the following description:
Shrimp farming in the United States remains more or less a cottage industry, but a handful of ambitious start-ups and smaller enterprises across the country are aiming to carve out a bigger slice of the market. U.S. shrimp may never be able to compete with imports on price, but there is a proven market for U.S.-grown shrimp, and more consumers are showing they are willing to pay a premium for locally produced shrimp with sustainability bona fides. Join these four executives of shrimp-farming operations across the United States – from California to Texas to Florida – to discuss their approaches to shrimp-farming, their varying business models, and their opinions on the future of the shrimp-farming industry in the U.S.
The entire package of videos from Seafood Expo Global can also be purchased for USD 300 for non-members, and is free to SeafoodSource Premium members, through the Complete Digital Ticket: Seafood Expo Global 2023.
