First four-star BAP shrimp for Latin America

Seajoy Group has become Latin America’s first company qualified to offer four-star Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) shrimp for its operations in both Honduras and Nicaragua.

Four-star BAP status means that the product originates from a BAP-certified processing plant, farm, hatchery and feed mill.

Seajoy became eligible to offer four-star BAP shrimp on confirmation that it sources feed from Cargill de Honduras S. de R. L. feed mill, which earned BAP certification in early June. Seajoy’s processing plant and all of its farms and hatcheries in Honduras and Nicaragua are BAP certified.

“At Seajoy, we are proud to partner with Cargill in obtaining our fourth BAP star,” said Brad Price, the company’s vice president of operations and sales. “Together we are working to improve our feeding efficiencies as well as minimise our fishmeal requirements. To that end, we are in the second phase of testing an insect meal that we expect will replace 75% to 100% of our fishmeal sources.”

Seajoy was the world’s first company qualified to offer three-star BAP shrimp in 2005, when its Larvicultura del Pacifico hatchery landed BAP certification.
