Collectively referred to as Tidal Basin™ technology, The trū Shrimp Companies deploys three existing patents, one pending patent and three to-be-filed patents to create the most stable and efficient shrimp growing environment in the world. The trū Shrimp Companies will utilize its technological capabilities and overall business model to produce the highest quality, most sustainable shrimp in the world. This technology also enables the automated collection of shrimp molts and peels, leading to the production of chitosan. By capitalizing on the shrimp as a whole, we are able to create multiple products for multiple industries, while continuing on our journey to a more sustainable and ethical system.
HOW IT WORKS
This technology grows shrimp in a controlled habitat that recreates the natural ocean currents, focusing on reducing stress and creating an environment where shrimp can thrive — enabling us to predictably grow shrimp more effectively than conventional pond methods. In addition, the shallow water allows for vertical farming, requiring less space to produce more shrimp than even the most efficient alternatives.

Greater Growth Rate
Tidal Basin™ technology has been measured, documented and recognized for its unparalleled sustainability. Along with being environmentally conscious, its ability to control and monitor oxygen levels, water flow and temperature ranges ensures the consumer receives the highest quality products on the market.
NOT JUST SHRIMP
The same technology that helps create the perfect habitat for our shrimp to thrive also enables the constant collection of shrimp molts. These, along with all other outputs, are then turned into various high-quality materials used across a variety of industries.
