New Year, New Beginnings
Exciting things are happening for Urban Seas this year! We are in the process of restructuring our business to focus more on consulting and sustainable fisheries education. Unfortunately, this means we will no longer be selling our shrimp for local consumption. We are immensely grateful for all of the positive feedback and support from all of our customers.
When we first started Urban Seas, I knew all along I was going to give Urban Seas a three year timeline to succeed. After three years, the plan was always to readjust and either go big; purchasing (or building) our own facility and go all in, or to change direction. We are two and a half years into Urban Seas and while I can confidently say it has been a success (we have sold out every harvest, helped educate consumers on sustainable seafood, and brought awareness to aquaculture), we are maximizing out our space and our equipment and thus the time has come to rethink our approach.
We will still be open to consulting: helping other entrepreneurs navigate their way into starting a biofloc facility of their own. We are also still involved in sustainable seafood education, so please don’t hesitate to reach out for lectures, guides on being more seafood savvy, or any questions you may have about aquaculture in general!
