The crown of the group so far as total export value is concerned, is the high-value product “Black Tiger Shrimp”. The natural Black Tiger Shrimps (KOLKATA EBI Brand) from the backwaters of Sunderban forests has its own competitive edge over shrimps farmed in other geographical locations. Black Tiger Shrimp is farmed in natural environment in West Bengal where direct connection is there between the extensive farms and the estuaries leading to the sea. During the full moon and the new moon, the shrimps swim against the current of water created by the tide which come inside the extensive ponds and get trapped in the bamboo boxes. Hence, landing of these natural shrimps take place in West Bengal at the whims of nature only during the full moon and new moon phases. The landing of these natural shrimps from the Sunderban estuarine regions takes place from the beginning of April to the end of October where May to August is taken as the peak period. So, these black tiger shrimps (Kolkata EBI Brand) can be termed as nearby “Organic Shrimps”.
Semi-intensive cultivation mostly in Midnapore area produces Cultured Black Tiger Shrimps (MIZU GOHAN brand). The culture process is same what is followed in other parts of the world, like Thailand, Indonesia & Vietnam & in India at Tuticorin belt.
The same way White legged shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei) also started being cultured in Midnapore belt of West Bengal. These shrimps are packed in MIZU GOHAN brand itself from 2013 onwards.
ZASF started its commercial production in March 2010, with the freezing capacity of finished products 31 MT/Day. It started with 600 MT/Annum and today in 2022 its producing to the tune of 4500 MT/Annum. The magnificent growth is seen due to the constant vigilance by the management and infusion of capital by the promoters for latest machineries & equipment /working capital requirements.
