Why Shrimp Farming?

Shrimp is the most preferred seafood in the world. The average American consumes 4-6lbs of it per year, yet the U.S. imports over 90% of their shrimp. With so much imported, where do we come in?

Imported Seafood is Unhealthy

Not only is imported seafood unhealthy and often filled with banned hormones and antibiotics, offshore farms and fishing destroy the environment.

Shrimp Farming 101

Shrimp Farming 101

RDM Shrimp has developed an affordable turnkey program to help equip new shrimp farmers with all of the needed materials and knowledge.

Why farm shrimp?

90% of U.S. shrimp is imported, often containing banned antibiotics, hormones, and mercury. Healthier, cleaner, RDM Shrimp provide that fresh-caught taste without these chemicals – something imported shrimp can’t beat.

What does it take?

Shrimp farming is not labor intensive and only requires daily water testing, typically taking around three hours in a controlled 82°F environment. A large 32-tank operation only requires three employees working one eight hour shift.

How much will I make?

Our farm owners sell shrimp at a premium $19lb. Depending on the market, a successful, fully functioning 32-tank commercial shrimp farm profit margin is roughly 60% with the overall COGS around $9.00 per pound- equaling an extra seven figures annually.

How do I get started?

To get started, all you need is a building for the operation. RDM has integrated shrimp farms in everything from new buildings to hundred-year old barns – the only major requirements are drainage and insulation.

Getting Started

When RDM first started farming shrimp we were told that 40% survival rates were fantastic – unsatisfied with losing 60% of our product, we tested and innovated our way to a groundbreaking 90% survival rate!
Using our setup, process, and testing systems, you can benefit from our years of experience and expertise when setting up your building and tanks, preparing your water, and introducing your shrimp.
