SIS Florida is the original company facility that began operations in 1998 in the Florida Keys. It was chosen for its pristine waters, natural protected areas and resulting high level of biosecurity. The 3 Ha site contains the genetic nucleus for P vannamei and also houses a broodstock multiplication facility with the capacity to produce and ship 200,000 commercial breeders per year.
SIS Florida has a 21-year history with SPF as documented by results of a quarterly sampling program of stocks that is submitted for PCR analysis to the Aquaculture Pathology Laboratory at the University of Arizona. The facility is certified annually by the State of Florida as compliant with Best Management Practices and maintains a yearly certification for SPF status with the US Federal Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
