About Kona Bay Marine Resources
Kona Bay Marine Resources is the largest aquaculture company in Hawaii and is one of the world’s leading suppliers of genetically-improved, specific-pathogen-free (SPF) shrimp broodstock.
The Kona Bay breeding center, hatchery, farm, and processing plant are the only shrimp farming facilities on the island of Kauai, which is separated from other Hawaiian islands by at least 200 km of deep ocean. Kona Bay’s isolated location, mild subtropical climate, and pure naturally-filtered seawater from deep wells offer an optimal environment for biosecure culture of shrimp.
Kona Bay Marine Resources was founded in 1996 on the big island of Hawaii. In 2006, the company shifted operations to the island of Kauai, where it acquired the hatchery, farm, and processing plant of Ceatec USA Inc. In 2009, the company was acquired by Integrated Aquaculture International, an aquaculture technology company with broad experience in animal health, genetics, nutrition, and animal husbandry. Kona Bay is headquartered in Waimea, Kauai, in the state of Hawaii, USA.
