Pesquera Bravito, Ecuador

The oldest shrimp farm in Ecuador still operating today was built in 1968. Today our customer Pesquera Bravito group operates 500 hectares of grow-out ponds, supplied by an on-site hatchery that produces 25 to 30 million nauplii per month and ca. 150 million juveniles per year.

Innovations such as shortening the grow-out cycle, stocking larger animals and diversifying into new species require a focus that is shared by every associate and employee. Apart from a motivated and knowledgeable workforce, data analysis is a crucial success factor within Pesquera Bravito’s way of working. Measuring and reviewing results, cost analysis, feeding management and field test trials are only some of the many activities that can lead to future improvement.
