Atarraya's Shrimpbox has won the Edison Awards which "underlines its unwavering commitment to innovation in sustainable aquaculture," the company published in its LinkedIn profile.
Shrimpbox employs bio floc technology, reducing water usage and eliminating the need for antibiotics and harmful chemicals.
With this hardware, farms can be set up anywhere, near cities, and detached from the natural environment, providing customers with complete transparency.
For ten years Atarraya has focused on solving the problems related to the shrimp industry to provide a better source of protein for the world. The company owns a commercial urban shrimp farming with bio floc in Oaxaca, Mexico, where we have done more than 500 iterations of our technology.
