AquaPrawnics Standard Unit
We are a Fish 2.0 qualified company https://www.fish20.org/ One of our main focus areas is indoor aquaculture of clean, fresh and sustainable saltwater shrimps and prawns. We have one of the most experienced and world leading shrimp experts on our payroll. AquaPrawnics is currently building its first facility in Noxon, Montana, including hatchery and shrimp grow-out.
Shrimp production is energy intensive. In order to cut costs, we generate our own energy from renewable biomass via pyrolysis. The by-product of that process is biochar. The waste from our shrimp operations, biochar and algae we produce is turned into an effective organic soil amendment (fertilizer), which is sold to farmers. Our utility does not produce any waste of its own.
The AquaPrawnics facility does not produce any waste of its own. One of our Standard Units eliminates and avoids roughly 8,000 tons of CO2 per year.
Organic matter in the soil is the root cause of all life. Without the organic matter in the soil, life on our planet would simply not exist. Using our soil amendment reduces the environmentally devastating effects of mineral fertilizers.
Since our utilities need to be positioned close to the generation of biomass, they are positioned in rural areas. These areas have often high unemployment. Our Standard Unit provides jobs for up to 20 employees in one location.
