December 11, 2020  By Hatchery International staff

Hendrix Genetics has formed a new company to expand its global shrimp breeding activities in Indonesia.

Hendrix Genetics’ shrimp breeding is already well-known under the name of Kona Bay, which operates in Hawaii, Ecuador and Malaysia. With the addition of a new facility in West Java, the company hopes to expand its market share and volume in the Indonesian market. The company says the Kona Bay brand currently holds approximately 60 per cent of the market share.

“We are delighted to announce this latest development in the expansion of our global shrimp breeding activities,” said Neil Manchester, managing director of aquaculture for Hendrix Genetics. “Indonesia is a key market for us, and we are committed to providing all our valued customers with the very best broodstock.”

Within two years, the company also plans to move to brand new facilities in North Bali, capable of producing over 100,000 specific pathogen-free Vannamei broodstock per year.
