All-female Shrimp Aquaculture
Enzootic is an animal biotechnology and genetics company positioned to vertically support breeding and farming of all-female freshwater and marine shrimp.
Farming monosex populations of shrimp offers enhancement in performance and economic value. In the absence of the dominant, more-aggressive males, all-female populations are well suited to intensive farming, demonstrating uniform growth, higher survival rates, and superior feed conversion ratios.
With these advantages in mind, Enzootic has developed a cell transplantation technology that is used for the commercial production of all-female shrimp populations, without the use of hormones, chemicals, or genetic modifications. The company's technology taps into the natural sex differentiation mechanism of crustaceans and harnesses their unique sexual plasticity to realize the goal of all-female aquaculture.
