About Us

About Us


Montana Fresh Shrimp is located in the beautiful Flathead Valley, Montana. Surrounded by wilderness we are dedicated to running a sustainable and green business to preserve the beauty of our environment. Our shrimp are free of antibiotics, petrochemicals and environmental contamination due to our controlled indoor shrimp aquaculture system. Our aquaponic scientific team has over twenty years experience in aquaculture to maintain optimum shrimp health and safety.

We use an organic shrimp feed that is optimized to be┬ánutrient rich and full of omega 3’s. This creates healthy shrimp. After each harvest the shrimp tanks are drained preserving the water and the sludge from the bottom creates a healthy fertilizer. ┬áThe water is then reused because it contains healthy bacteria that is beneficial for the shrimp.

We are in the building stages of our sustainable shrimp farm project. Please sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media for up to the minute news on our progress.
