Kauai Shrimp are Pacific White leg shrimp found in the wild from the gulf of California to the western edge of Peru. This shrimp is recognized for its incredible sweetness as we endeavor to replicate the natural environment in which the shrimp are grown. We grow Kauai Shrimp in the most optimum, eco-friendly environment possible and use no chemicals or antibiotics in the breeding, grow out or processing. Our process pure and simple just the way nature intended it.
Kauai Shrimp is a vertically integrated shrimp farming facility encompassing 258 acres of former sugar cane fields on the west end of Kauai Hawaii. All breeding, grow out, processing and packaging is handled by Kauai Shrimp. By industry standards our facilities are small, featuring forty, one acre, ponds and eight half-acre ponds with an annual harvest of one million pounds of shrimp.
Our processing facility is fifteen minutes from the farm and the shrimp are either frozen at 25 below zero or shipped out fresh, the day of the harvest. All Kauai Shrimp are sold whole, head-on, by the count per pound. Hawaii is an optimum environment for farm-raised shrimp as the sunny weather provides for a year-round growing season. We support over 50 families on the west side of Kauai. We are active in the community donating shrimp used in our breeding production to local organizations that use the shrimp in fundraising efforts. In 2019 that amounted to over 50k in revenue for local charities and organizations in need.
