Hendrix Genetics expands shrimp breeding activities into Indonesia
Beginning early 2021, Indonesian shrimp hatcheries will be able to source high quality, specific pathogen free (SPF) broodstock, locally reared.
Hendrix Genetics’ shrimp breeding activities are well known under the name of Kona Bay.
Regular batches from the Kona Bay strategic nucleus in Hawaii will supply the Indonesian facility with the best quality production post larvae (PPL) to ensure year round availability of genetically enhanced broodstock.
Initial operations will be based at a SPF facility in West Java.
Within two years, Hendrix Genetics plans to move to brand new state of the art SPF facilities in North Bali, capable of producing over 100,000 SPF Vannamei broodstock per year.
Hendrix Genetics expects to expand its market share and volume, as the industry grows in line with forecasts.
Kona Bay Indonesia is part of the strategic expansion plans of the Aquaculture business unit of Hendrix Genetics. ■
