RDM Aquaculture LLC RDM Aquaculture LLC

 

RDM Shrimp are locally grown in Benton County Indiana. RDM Shrimp is delivered fresh and never frozen.  RDM Shrimp are the best saltwater shrimp you will ever taste.  When you buy our shrimp we can guarantee you a healthy, fresh product with no HORMONES OR ANTIBIOTICS. You will know where your shrimp come from. They are a great alternative to imported shrimp.  

 

RDM Shrimp farms uses a zero exchange aerobic heterotrophic system  (ZEAH).   We begin by running our water through several filters to take out unwanted bacteria, algae, and viruses.  After we initially fill our growing tanks we do nothing to the water. This system makes the water as close to their natural habitat minus all the pollutants. We add no hormones, chemicals, or antibiotics to our shrimp. We have been using the same water for the last 4 1/2 years.  We do not throw our saltwater down the drain like many other aquaculture systems do. 

 

We get about 250,000 pl (post larvel) from a SPF (specific pathogen free) hatchery in Florida when they are about 11 days old every  month. When we receive them, we acclimate them to our water's temp, Dissolved Oxygen, and PH. They stay in their nursery tanks for 28 days then are moved into their intermediate tanks. While in the nursery tanks their water quality is tested every day along with being fed a high protein diet from Ziegler. For 3 1/2 years we have continuously produced a 90% survival rate from the nursery. 

 

After 28 days we move the PLs (post larval) to an intermediate tank where they stay for three weeks then we sell 70%  of the pls to other shrimp farmers.  This jump starts this system and takes two months off their growing cycle.  We call it a feeder shrimp.   We have continuously produced a 90% survival rate from the intermediate tanks. After 28 days we move them from their intermediat tanks either to other shrimp farms or own grow out tanks.

 

In our grow out tanks our water is over 4 years old and we are producing 80% -90% survival rates in these tanks.  It is a lot of testing and attention to detail.  We are no longer shrimp farmers, we are guardians of the water.  As long as our water does  what it is suppose to do, our shrimp do great.

  

 

We have helped set up 14 farms in the last  two years.  We have also partnered up with Marvesta and by working with them we are trying to better the production of shrimp to where we can get an 96% survival rate.

 

We also have a goal to make Indiana the "Shrimp Capital" of the world.   There is no reason why we can not compete with the imported shrimp.  Our product is superior to what is being imported into this country because our shrimp have a much cleaner taste and much better texture.   


We have shrimp available all year long.  Just stop by for a visit and we will dip you the cleanest, freshest shrimp you will taste for at least 600 miles.   We sell them live so we can guarantee you a very fresh product.  The best part is knowing where your shrimp actually came from!
