What’s next and how can you help us?
Our goal for 2024 is to implement 12 additional Optimar Electrical stunners. These stunners are crucial in our efforts to improve shrimp welfare standards. Each unit, priced at $65,000, with an extra $50,000 for operational logistics, is capable of stunning approximately 8,600 Metric Tonnes of shrimp annually, translating to about 560 million shrimps. This number means that each stunner facilitates the humane treatment of roughly ~1,500+ shrimps for every dollar spent each year.
