As we approach the last quarter of the year, America's #1 consumed seafood is sure to continue to hold its place at the top of the charts.

Our partner shrimp farm, Chanduy, has been family owned since 1984 and is vertically integrated from hatchery to the moment we are ready to ship.

For the past 30 years, Chanduy farm has continuously produced shrimp on the West coast of Ecuador. The farm comprises over 3,500 acres of sand bottom ponds, allowing us to raise Ecuadorian white shrimp in a low-density environment to avoid overcrowding and promote good health.

Chanduy's shrimp production has been key in the development of Ecuadorian aquaculture. They were pioneers who developed an integrated reproduction program for crustacean larvae and were the first shrimp producers to stop capturing wild larvae. The closed reproduction program at Chanduy was the first step towards achieving a long-term sustainable shrimp production.

Today, Chanduy uses solely cultivated animals, which allows them to maintain  healthy stock while reducing the risk of introduced outside parasites. The farm never uses antibiotics, growth promoters or mammal proteins during production.

At Tropical, we are committed to delivering premium products while maintaining healthy farming habitats as well as their surroundings. The Swiss-based Institute of Marketecology (IMO) validates Chanduy's practices as sustainable and responsible. In addition, for every shrimp purchase a donation is made to the Charles Darwin Foundation for the conservation of Ecuador's Galapagos Islands.

While looking for a fresh shrimp supply, you can turn to Tropical to fulfill your fresh shrimp needs. Blue Foot White Shrimp is flown fresh, free of chemicals or preservatives into US ports in less than 36 hours of harvesting and has 8 days of shelf-life.
