Selva Shrimp® are premium-quality black tiger prawns naturally raised in mangrove forests by small-scale farmers in Southern Vietnam. Selva Shrimp® not only offer a unique sustainable seafood choice, but also create a direct link between consumers and farming communities in Southeast Asia.
Integrated mangrove forest shrimp farming combines the economic use of mangrove forests with shrimp aquaculture, for which the underlying principle is simple: Mangrove forests are maintained and preserved in order to provide habitat and food for the animals that are raised in small channels and ponds within the forest.
In these systems, shrimp are raised with no feed or chemicals. The ecosystem fully relies on its own natural productivity, which creates incentives for farmers to maintain mangroves. The forest not only provides the shrimp with natural food, but also provides a better and more stable income for families and communities.Read more about why you may want to switch to Selva Shrimp
