Technology

We have developed a proprietary set of protocols for feed and parameter control that yields the best possible living and growth conditions throughout the entire production cycle in a stable and sustainable Microbial Technology system

Noray’s cutting edge technology is a result of more than 11 years of R&D. It represents a major advancement compared to traditional pond farming and RAS/Clear-water systems.  Microbiome systems control the water quality through a self-nitrification process with zero water exchange. The shrimp use the microorganisms as an additional source of feed which increases productivity and reduces feed conversion ratio (FCR).  Our indoor production, the use of artificial saltwater and the enforcement of strict biosecurity measures effectively minimize the risk of disease.

Our proprietary protocols permit control of key water parameter such as oxygen, salinity, NH3, bacteria and floc level. The result is a cost-effective production of clean, fresh shrimp, free of sulphites, antibiotics and chemicals.

With in-house processing, we guarantee a maximum of one hour between harvest and packaging and a short-travelled premium quality shrimp that can be delivered fresh or cooked within 24-48 hours from harvest.

CONTROLLABLE

Controlling the full production sequence

Having an in-house hatchery is key for control of larvae quality, stocking intervals and predictable output. Noray is the first company in the world that has reproduced shrimp in 100% artificial seawater.

In our super intensive system, shrimp grow from larvae to a market-size product in 100 -120 days. Our objective is for decreased time in grow-out and improved biomass control through optimisation measures. Strict adherence to proprietary protocols is key for control in the hatchery, nursery and grow-out phases.

KEY QUALITIES

The Microbial Technology for shrimp

  • Eco-friendly and built on the principles of sustainability, bio-security, zero waste and emissions
  • Improved growth rates and feed conversion ratio (FCR)
  • No filtration, self-nitrification process with minimal use of water, & zero discharge
  • Low operating and investment costs
PLANET FIRST

The new way of shrimp farming

With our Climate Smart production method, we successfully address the challenges of the conventional shrimp industry; a multitude of diseases, the widespread use of antibiotics, chemicals and sulphites and criticized labour practises.

In our indoor facility we can ensure a stable environment independent of climatic conditions and thereby allow production and harvesting all year round, supporting the local economy.
