Hendrix Genetics and India's Sapthagiri Hatcheries are jointly establishing a broodstock multiplication center under the name Kona Bay India to supply broodstock to India's shrimp industry.

Beginning early 2023, Indian shrimp hatcheries will be able to source high-quality, specific pathogen free (SPF) broodstock, locally reared, from the new facility in Andhra Pradesh on India's east coast, according to Hendrix.

This is a next step in the strategy of Hendrix Genetics to establish growout facilities closer to its customers, making its product more accessible for all hatcheries and farmers.
