Genetic Program

Demands for new and better products are a worldwide trend. The shrimp market is not an exception and future challenges to overcome are big in terms of producing high performance postlarvaes facing industry problems regarding to market, environment and health.

With a clear vision of innovation and technological development, Mahr Group decided to venture into shrimp genetic research to have a product able to face these challenges in the medium term.

Starting in 2009, in conjunction with the Northwest Biological Research Center (CIBNOR México) Acuacultura Mahr spent significant resources to develop a genetic program based on a massive selection of organisms identified through genetic markers, with lower inbreeding and greater weight gain, aimed to achieve world class shrimp broodstock and PL's with higher growths and survival performance rates.
