OceanBoy Farms, a low-salinity, inland shrimp farm in Central Florida, is based on a 1,500-acre spread near LaBelle with a processing plant 25 miles away on the outskirts of Clewiston, a quiet sugar town near Lake Okeechobee. It's the nation's only commercial producer of organic shrimp. According to Carlos Martinez, an aquaculture expert at the University of Florida's Sea Grant marine extension program, "OceanBoy is the biggest, baddest and meanest high-tech aquaculture farm in existence.''

The $55 million, privately held operation grew out of a master's thesis that founder David McMahon wrote a decade ago at the Nova Southeastern University's Oceanographic Center on the feasibility of raising ocean shrimp in fresh water.

Eddy Daniel, vice president of processing, is in charge of the plant, which employs 125 people during the twice-yearly harvests. The shrimp are chill-killed in an icy slush, jet-washed, de-headed by hand and graded. Some are left shell-on; others are peeled and steam-cooked. A conveyor belt carries them through a liquid-nitrogen tunnel that instantly freezes them. Then they're glazed with ice to protect from freezer burn, bagged, boxed and stored overnight in a deep-freeze before shipping to customers around the country and in Japan.

Michigan-Farmed Shrimp Wins Super Bowl

Russ Allen, who runs a small, indoor shrimp farm in Michigan, reports:

It is market day here at the farm. I was in early this morning preparing the day's shrimp products when I got some good news!

The Super Bowl is in Detroit next week. In preparation for the big game, there are a series of events that lead up to it, one of them being a luncheon prepared every day in the Media Center. The media center is located in the lobby/atrium of the Renaissance Center, home of General Motors and the headquarters for all official events at the Super Bowl.

Anyway, on Thursday, a local chef will be preparing his specialty, "Home-Grown Michigan Shrimp"—with shrimp from our farm! It will be fun to be a part of the hoopla and I look forward to promoting the quality of all USA farm-raised shrimp!

Utah-The Brine Shrimp Industry

The Associated Press reports from Salt Lake City:

Brine shrimp, or Artemia, are one of the few organisms that can live in Utah's Great Salt Lake. Under perfect conditions, an adult female can live as long as three months and produce as many as 300 tiny eggs every four days. It's this bounty of eggs that prompts nearly two dozen companies to fork over $10,000 for each permit (79 permits available) to skim brine shrimp eggs from the surface of the lake. The fishing season usually lasts from sometime in October through January.

Brine shrimp eggs float to the surface of the lake in streaks. Planes spot the streaks and radio their locations to the fishing boats, most of which work out of the marina on Antelope Island.

That $10,000 license buys the right to place one marker buoy on a streak of eggs. Once a boat places its buoy, it's unlawful for another boat to come within 300 yards of it, said Clay Perschon, program manager for the Great Salt Lake Ecosystem Project.

The eggs are harvested in a manner similar to cleaning up an oil spill. Booms are used to surround the "slick" of eggs, which also includes dead shrimp, algae and water. This biomass is then sucked into sacks.

As of January 12, 2006, more than 9 million pounds of biomass has been taken off the lake this season. About a quarter of that amount is likely to turn out to be salable eggs, Perschon said.

After the eggs are taken from the lake, they are cleaned, frozen, brined, tested and dried. Each company has its own processing secrets. Companies are reluctant to discuss the specifics of their processing, and some hold patents on parts of the process, drying in particular.

Don Leonard, president of the Utah Artemia Association, a brine shrimp trade association, said, "Up until about six or seven years ago, Great Salt Lake had as much as 90 percent of the international market. At the present time, we're fighting to hold onto 45 or 50 percent." When brine shrimp fishermen had no harvest in 1999, many of their buyers turned to brine shrimp from China and Russia, which have lower production costs.

The fishermen pay a 3.75-cent tax to the state for each pound of unprocessed product. Last year, this tax brought in $418,700, said Charlie Roberts, a spokesman for the Utah Tax Commission.

Eggs from Utah usually fetch from about $10 to $20 a pound. Over the last 20 years, an average of 2.4 million pounds of processed eggs have been taken off the lake each year. At a price of $12 a pound, that's a $28 million dollar business.

Washington, DC-FDA Antibiotics

The USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released its figures on antibiotic testing in seafood for fiscal year 2005. A total number of 536 (172 domestic and 364 import) samples were collected from 15 countries in fiscal year 2005. FDA's testing targeted seven types of antibiotics including two hundred and eighty samples for chloramphenicol, thirty nine for nitrofurans, one hundred eight for fluoroquinolones and eighteen for malachite green.

The above statistics are for all seafood; here are the statistics on the shrimp tests:

Chloramphenicol (183 samples, 3 positive, Vietnam 2, Thailand 1).

Nitrofurans (39 samples, 3 positive, Indonesia 2, China 1).

Fluoroquinolones (13 samples, all negative).

Malachite (shrimp not tested).

Quinolones (Oxolinic Acid and Flumequine, 9 samples, all negative).

Ivermectin (shrimp not tested).

Oxytetracycline (7 samples, all negative).

Bob Collette, vice president of science and technology at the National Fisheries Institute, a trade association for the fisheries and aquaculture industries, said: "It is noteworthy that the trend for shrimp chloramphenicol testing continues to be downward and shrimp were entirely negative for fluoroquinolones, quinolones, and oxytetracycline."

In fiscal year 2006, FDA plans to test 950 samples of seafood for antibiotics.

Organic Shrimp

Volketswil, a supermarket chain in Switzerland, has been selling organic, farmed shrimp from Vietnam since 2002. State-owned Canimex Company and Shrimp Farm 184 in Ca Mau Province supply the shrimp. Gerhard Zurlutter, Volketswil's sales manager, said his company would inject more money into expanding the organic shrimp farming area in Ca Mau province in 2006. He expects Swiss imports of Vietnamese organic shrimp to reach $3.14 million in 2006. In 2004, when imports reached $2 million, the shrimp received high praise from the Association of Swiss Organic Farming Organization (BIO SUISSE).
