Pacific White Shrimp is the latest catch from sustainable seafood company Blue Circle Foods. Farmed in partnership with Lanec Corporation, Blue Circle Shrimp is raised at high ecological standards in remote Ecuador and provides an affordable, sustainable choice for shoppers.
Lanec, a family-owned farm located on a remote coast of Ecuador, raises native Pacific White Shrimp in spacious ocean-water ponds with minimal environmental impact and without harm to mangroves. Conventional shrimp farms in Southeast Asia often cause the widespread destruction of mangroves, small trees known for their ability to store carbon and slow global warming that are vital to environmental stability. According to NASA, between the years 2000 and 2016, 62% of mangrove loss was due to human impact.
