SIS Singapore is a broodstock multiplication center that began operations in 2005, and currently has the capacity to produce and ship about 150,000 commercial broodstock per year. All shrimp stocks at SIS Singapore originate as juveniles from SIS Florida. The facility occupies a 1.8 Ha plot of land at the Singapore Agriculture and Aquaculture Industrial Park that is managed by the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA). The AVA is the national authority for food safety (including aquatic animal health) and is the agency designated by the World Organization of Animal Health (OIE) to monitor and regulate the health status of animal stocks in Singapore.
Since 2005, the AVA has a health monitoring program in place for SIS Singapore, consisting of periodic PCR and histopathology testing of all shrimp stocks. This facility is an ideal biosecure and strategic location to serve the Asian markets and provides comprehensive support and technical expertise to SIS’ Asian customers.
