Sustainable, locally farmed shrimp available in San Antonio

San Antonians are lucky to have shrimp available, whose growth and harvesting is sustainable and which doesn't result in pollution.

Natural Shrimp International located in LaCoste has developed methods that allow self-contained, chemical free growth of shrimp in an environmentally responsible way, using metered water supplies.

Currently their shrimp is available in large quanitities by special order and to the general public at the Pearl Farmer's Market each Saturday.

The company sells its shrimp fresh and has plans to build farms near other major metropolitan areas. Since their process does not require access to the ocean their plants can be built inland as needed.


  1. Not only are they sustainable, they're the best shrimp I've ever tasted!!
