SPF & SPR P. vannamei Shrimp Broodstock

We specialize in the production of SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) and SPR (Specific Pathogen Resistant) broodstock. Our domesticated families of broodstock have a stock origin from the SPF / SPR populations of the USDA Marine Shrimp Farming Program at The Oceanic Institute in Hawaii.

The SPR Broodstock are resistant to the TSV (taura virus) which is prevalent in many parts of the world.  The Oceanic Institute refined these families from extensive research and development.

The State of Hawaii Aquaculture Disease Prevention Program’s Veterinarian Medical Officer lll Allen C. Riggs DVM, MS routinely samples our population for WSSV, IHHNV, HPV, TSV, YHV, INMV and MVB. and other serious pathogens of marine shrimp. Shrimp are tested using state of the art technology by D.V.

Our facilities have remained free of serious shrimp pathogens since the inception of shrimp operations in 1984.  Molokai Sea Farms International is the longest running aquaculture operation in the State of Hawaii.
