JT Shrimp LLC, Society of Innovators Member 2016-2017


Scott & Leslie Tysen founded JT Shrimp LLC, a family-owned shrimp farm in Wheatfield named after their daughter Julia. It uses a unique recirculating water aquaculture system that produces zero wastewater. The Tysens have a zero exchange aerobic heterotrophic system to raise the “freshest saltwater shrimp in the area.” This system makes the water as close as possible to a shrimp’s natural habitat, minus all the pollutants. No hormones, chemicals or antibiotics are added making their shrimp healthier and more sustainable, said nominator Daniel Plath. To learn more visit www.nwisoi.org
