Cultivation

We carry out extensive cultivation, which is both safer and in more harmony with nature.

Extensive cultivation is a cultivation method in a virtually natural environment without use of compound feed, antibiotics or antibacterial agents. It is a traditional cultivation method used in Indonesia for hundreds of years and has been thought out over many years in consideration of the regional environment and natural ecosystem.

The size of an extensive cultivation pond is approximately 10 times that of a regular intensive cultivation pond. Healthy shrimp can be raised in a spacious pond without overcrowding.

Extensive cultivation ponds in Sidoarjo Regency – A cultivation method that is kind to the environment

Plankton growing in the roots of mangroves provides food for the shrimp. This is cultivation method in harmony with nature and there are no concerns about natural destruction from mangrove deforestation. Fresh water is continually supplied through the ebb and flow on the tides. Because there is no water pollution from feed residue, the method is environmentally friendly and has the advantage of extremely low levels of disease among the shrimp.

The shrimp have a habit of swimming towards the natural flow of water brought about by the ebb and flow of the tide. This habit is used to catch the strongest and healthiest shrimp in bamboo cages located near the sluice gates.
