Global patent for shrimp raceway granted

TRU Shrimp Systems announced April 27 that it has entered into an agreement with Texas A&M University for the exclusive worldwide rights to commercialize Tidal Basin technology, formerly referred to as super-intensive raceway systems.

The license agreement for the patented technology, developed by shrimp expert Dr. Addison Lawrence, extends to countries such as China, Taiwan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and the U.K.

"We have had inquiries from all over the world for our Tidal Basin technology, and tru Shrimp Systems, as a brand of Ralco, clearly understands the global implications of this technology," tru Shrimp general manager Michael Ziebell said. "The patent rights we have secured represent the largest markets for shrimp. For example, China has become a net importer of shrimp. The patent rights position us to supply protein to a growing world."

Since tru Shrimp acquired the initial patent rights to the U.S. market, it has accelerated commercialization of the Tidal Basin technology and a state-of-the-art shrimp research center.

The first round of engineering has been completed for a multimillion-pound-per-year shrimp production facility.

The research center, located in Balaton, Minn., will be completed in August. The facility will include two commercial-scale Tidal Basin lines, as well as 144 shrimp research tanks, 116 nursery holding tanks, an animal health laboratory and water quality and shrimp feed laboratories, the announcement said.
