First Japanese land-based shrimp farm

Tokyo-based Nippon Suisan Kaisha (Nissui) has decided to build its first land-based vannamei
fanning facility in southern Japan.

Nissui will invest around JPY 421 million into the project, to be based at a 30,000 square-meter site in Minami Kyshu City, and initially produce around 200 metric tons per year.

The company plans to sell the shrimp into the sashimi and sushi sectors at home under the brand name Shirahime Ebi (white prince shrimp).

The company will begin construction of a 480 square-meter pond after the rainy season is over in early July. The company aims to begin the operation as early as this November and run a total of three ponds in the future.

Nissui has developed land-based farming technology at its Oita Marine Research Center; this is its first project on commercial basis.

The company says it may expand its project across the country if the pilot proves commercially viable.

Japan currently imports around 100,000 metric tons of vannamei each year from China and SE-Asia.
