RDM Shrimp are naturally and locally raised in Benton County Indiana. RDM Shrimp is delivered fresh and never frozen. RDM Shrimp are the cleanest and freshest saltwater shrimp you will ever taste. When you buy our shrimp we can guarantee you a healthy fresh product and you know where your shrimp come from. They are a great alternative to imported shrimp.
RDM Shrimp farms uses a zero exchange aerobic heterotrophic system (ZEAH). We begin by running our water through several filters to take out unwanted bacteria, algae, and viruses. After we initially fill our growing tanks we do nothing to the water. This system makes the water as close to their natural habitat minus all the pollutants. We add no hormones, chemicals or antibiotics to our shrimp. We have been using the same water for the last 2 1/2 years. We do not throw our saltwater down the drain like many other aquaculture systems do.
We get our shrimp from a SPF (specific pathogen free) hatchery in Florida when they are about 11 days old. When we receive them, we acclimate them to our water's temp, Dissolved Oxygen, and PH. They stay in their nursery tanks for 28 days then are moved into their grower tanks. While in these tanks their water quality is tested every day along with being fed a high protein diet from Ziegler. For 12 months we have continuously produced a 90% survival rate from the nursery.
After 28 days we move the PLs (post larval) to an intermediate tank where they stay for two months. We have continuously produced a 90% survival rate from the intermediate tanks. In these grow out tanks they will stay for about another two months. We are also producing a 80% -90% survival rate from our grow out tanks.
With us producing a 90% survival rate we have to many juveniles for our grow out tanks. We will sell our PL 40s to other shrimp farmers who don’t want to do the nursery part of raising shrimp. This helps us to thin out our stocking density. It also helps new shrimp farms speed up their production. We have been very successful in doing this so far. We have even sent our Pls as far as New Mexico and lost only .05% of shrimp in transit.
We have shrimp available all year long. Just stop by for a visit and we will dip you the cleanest, freshest shrimp you will taste for at least 600 miles. We sell them live so we can guarantee you a very fresh product. Can your grocery store do that?? Plus you know where your shrimp are coming from.
