The most critical limiting factor in the Asian shrimp farming business is availability of quality white and black tiger shrimp postlarvae. The traditional practice of relying on wild spawners is not only limited by susceptibility to serious viral diseases which are prevalent in wild stocks, but also by sporadic seasonal availability and lack of selective breeding benefits. In addition, traditional shrimp hatcheries often lack appropriate biosecurity and rely on antibiotics to control bacterial diseases. These limitations have led to poor financial performance and food safety concerns. As a result, most Asian shrimp farmers have switched from infected wild shrimp to disease-free, genetically-improved, white and black tiger shrimp.
The mission of IA Health is to develop and maintain populations of specific pathogen free white and black tiger shrimp for clients.
Consistent year round supply
Specific pathogen free (SPF)
Bigger final size
No antibiotic residues
Secondary traits such as improved growth rates and specific pathogen resistance (SPR) will be introduced over time as outcomes of the IA Breeding program.
