The new $6.1 million facility is a world-class research and development station entirely dedicated to shrimp farming, making Skretting the ideal platform to further knowledge of shrimp nutrition and health.
The objective of this project is to accelerate the production process of the shrimp farming industry, introducing more sustainable and innovative foods.
Skretting Aquaculture Innovation Guayas (AI) incorporates state-of-the-art technology, with fully equipped laboratories and state-of-the-art experimental units, where critical trials will be carried out on white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei). The station also has tanks that will allow multiple studies to be conducted in conditions that simulate the commercial production environment.
The research center will study all stages of shrimp production, from the first larval stage to harvest-size animals. Simulations and evaluations include health and welfare parameters as well as growth and feed efficiency. Another key focus area will be the digestibility of new and existing ingredients in balanced diets.
