We operate a world-leading breeding programme for Penaeus vannamei, and globally distribute Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) strains from our biosecure multiplication centre in Florida, USA.
Using the latest genomic tools, our breeding program combines the expertise of Benchmark’s global team of geneticists with CENIACUA’s 22-year breeding experience.
We emphasize on developing breeders with a high level of resistance to the major diseases affecting the shrimp industry worldwide, such as WSSV and AHPND. As part of our commitment to animal welfare, none of our female breeders are eyestalk ablated.
