Zhongshan Prawn Project Updates
The new Zhongshan Prawn Project (ZSNPP) is a phase dependent development planned to span 20 years, and projected to deliver 10,000 metric tons of prawns for sale at the end of its first phase. This is eight to ten times the size of the Company's original fish farm, which started production in mid 2011. Construction commenced during the first quarter of 2014 on the designated 8,000 MU (1,300 acres) site.
Capacity production for the first stage of the first phase will be 3,000 metric tons. Stocking is scheduled to commence soon, after concrete finish work is remediated and equipment is installed.
Sino Agro Food's wholly owned subsidiary, Capital Award (CA), has licensed its indoor aquaculture A Power Recirculating Aquaculture System (APRAS) technology, now in its 11th generation, to ZSNPP. CA is the sole project developer, and will be the exclusive product marketer and distributor of the facility's products.
