Premium Craft Shrimp FAQs
Q. Why does a pound of your shrimp tails cost more than a pound of whole shrimp?
A. Approximately 65% of the weight of the whole shrimp is tail. Therefore, in order to get a pound of tails, one would need to order 1.5 lbs of whole shrimp.
Q. Why you call your farm “The Shrimp Spa”?
A. We nicknamed it The Shrimp Spa because of the ideal conditions shrimp like to grow when they are wild. We basically copied what nature offers, and they seem to really like the water we make for them.
Q. How much water does the farm use each day?
A. We are very proud to say that we only use 11 litres per minute to support the 1 million litres we have in our tanks. We are able to reclaim, clean and return the water in a closed loop to ensure that no water is wasted.
Q. Why are you farming shrimp in a building in Langley?
A. Approximately 85% of the world’s coastal oceans are at capacity or are being overfished. Farms like ours have no impact on the oceans or our surrounding ecosystem. We believe that our farm will be the norm for seafood production in the next 5 to 10 years.
