Kauai Shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei), Pacific Whiteleg Shrimp
Hands Down, this is the Best Shrimp You’ll Ever Taste.
Known for its sweet flavor, superior texture and stunning visual appeal, Kauai Shrimp™ is the preferred choice of Kauai’s and Hawaii’s top chefs.
Kauai shrimp are raised in pristine, well-sourced, saltwater, and fed a high-quality diet with NO chemicals or antibiotics ever used. Combine all this with Kekaha’s sunny weather and West Kauai aloha, and you have simply the best shrimp you’ll ever taste.
The Kauai shrimp farm sources their water at both our hatchery and farm from wells that penetrate a saltwater aquifer 500ft deep into the center of Kauai. The resulting water is high in salinity, bacteria-free, and is part of the secret to the sweet flavor of Kauai shrimp.
We cultivate our own algae to add to the ponds for the optimum environment in which the shrimp thrive. This is a chemical-free product as we don’t use any antibiotics in the grow-out and no sulfites in the processing of the shrimp. Much of our power is produced by a hydro plant up in the mountains behind our farm which minimizes our carbon footprint.
As a 100% transparent and sustainable seafood supplier, Royal Hawaiian was one of the first seafood processors in the country to collaborate with the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch program to ensure that we only sell products from fisheries that are responsibly harvested or aquacultured.
