About this project

Fresh Market by the New Mexico Shrimp Company prides itself on producing US locally grown, farm fresh, farm raised shrimp. Our shrimp are grown all natural without antibiotics, preservatives, or chemicals. More than 94 percent of the shrimp in the US are imported from countries that have very little regulation on quality and health. We want to change that paradigm and support  US, local organic and all natural seafood and vegetable products.

Shrimp are hand selected and never frozen. These are the best shrimp you will ever taste.

All natural shrimp that do not impact the environment or deplete the oceans. Our oceans are in trouble and we want to do our part to preserve the ecosystem.

We want to create an online sales distribution of our fresh all natural shrimp so that anyone in the US can get a quality seafood product no matter where they live.

Funds raised will purchase special packaging and labeling, create the online mechanism on the web site to order from, cold storage equipment and marketing.

First we will identify special packaging that will allow us to ship overnight and keep the product fresh. This will require some trial runs and product tested at a food lab to assure quality. Once successful the web site will be designed to place orders and we are on our way.

Our system of production reuses the water so that there is little to no waste. We operate the facility in a sustainable environmentally conscience manner. Our vision is to use the nutrient rich waste water to fertilize an aquaponic system of healthy vegetables and plants and then return the fresh water back into the shrimp production system. This leaves little waste. We know exactly what goes into our water so that we can produce a product free of chemicals.

Our shrimp are a healthy alternative to imported frozen shrimp. Shrimp are are a good source of nutrients and are loaded with protein, vitamin D, vitamin B3, and zinc, and shrimp are an excellent, carbohydrate-free food for anyone determined to shed off pounds. Also the omega-3 fatty acids in shrimp provide antioxidant protection.

Risks and challenges

Growing delicious salt water shrimp in the desert is a challenge. Growing conditions that are altered due to extreme temperatures can play havoc on the system. There are also potential regulatory issues with shipping fresh shrimp overnight. These currently are unknown but may poke their heads once sales are in place. Every effort to avoid these issues is taken and redundancy in preventing mishaps are implemented.
