Fast Growth and High Fecundity

The competitive advantages of SIS’ shrimp broodstock are fast growth, high fecundity, resistance to the Taura Syndrome Virus (TSV), and freedom from specific pathogens. SIS’ commercial lines have consistenly demonstrated to grow, under the right conditions, to 40 grams in 100 days(over 3.5 grams per week), to produce more than 6.5 million nauplii over the productive lifetime of a female, and have general hardiness to stress and disease resistance.
