NaturalShrimp Provides Florida Production Facility Update
DALLAS, TX, Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – NaturalShrimp, Inc. (OTCQB: SHMP), a Biotechnology Aquaculture Company that has developed and patented the first shrimp-focused commercially operational RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture System), announced today an update on the planned Florida shrimp production facility.
Florida State and County Government Support
At a recent Monticello-Jefferson Florida County Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner, Florida State Senator Loranne Ausley and County Commissioner Chris Tuten emphasized their support in finding the necessary government grants to fund the construction of a NaturalShrimp production facility on existing County land located in Jefferson County. David Antelo, Hydrenesis President & CEO, Luke Timmons, Hydrenesis Chief Operations Officer, and Tom Untermeyer, NaturalShrimp Chief Operations Officer & Chief Technology Officer attended the September 22, 2022 event at the Livingston Place formerly known as the Dixie Plantation.
Site Plan & Layout
The visit included meeting with the County engineer to review the overall site plan and layout for a 180,000 square foot facility and to perform a site inspection. The NaturalShrimp team will next provide the internal building layout and requirements designed specifically for the Florida site location to the County Architect for development of a set of construction drawings. This facility will serve as a model when constructing future facilities using the Company’s patented electrocoagulation and Hydrogas technologies as successfully demonstrated at its Texas and Iowa facilities.
“We are encouraged by the ongoing support from Florida state and local government officials to help identify and pursue available funding grants,” said Tom Untermeyer, NaturalShrimp COO & CTO. “We are now working diligently with County engineers and architects to meet the necessary requirements to build a highly scalable, capital efficient new facility, and look forward to updating shareholders in the coming months on our continued progress.”
