    Customer Challenge


    Recently this innovative organization turned its attention to overcoming certain challenges endemic to the shrimp industry: disease control, pollutant environment, and insufficient stability in the farming system; resulting in inconsistent shrimp yields, high production costs and lower profits for farmers. “That’s why we need to improve, perfect the aquaculture system, as well as applying technologies such as lighting to increase shrimp’s growth and resistance to weather and season change,” says Loc Tran, founder and director of ShrimpVet.

    The solution


    Shrimp have historically been farmed in the absence of the lighting solutions that support farming of other types of seafood. ShrimpVet’s experts thought that the time had come to change that. “Applying technologies such as lighting would increase shrimp’s growth and resistance to weather and seasonal changes,” Loc says. ShrimpVet and Signify teamed up to perform research that focus on shrimp grow out phase using Philips AquaAdvance 260W Shrimp and a specific light recipe developed for shrimp.
