Tropical Aquaculture Products, the US-based distributor of tilapia and shrimp bought by Brazilian tilapia farmer GeneSeas in 2020, has filed for bankruptcy.

The filing in a Delaware court is for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which unlike Chapter 11 means the company stops operations immediately and its assets are liquidated.

The filing follows one of its key supply partners, leading Ecuador shrimp producer Santa Priscila, telling IntraFish Thursday it would be selling its shrimp in the United States through its BlueFoot Seafoods Company arm after Tropical suspended shipments.
