AgriEuro Corp. Press Release:
BUCHAREST, Romania, March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — AgriEuro Corp. (EURI) today announced that it has finished preparing 2 growing ponds for its fish farm project.
The ponds are fully equipped with pumping stations and will receive “cycle 2” fish. These are medium sized fish that only require a short period of time to attain maturity.
AgriEuro estimates that the product will reach fish markets within 12 months following population.
The company will follow all regulations required to raise fish that can be labeled Organic.
The Danube Carp will be the main species farmed on the property as it is a local fish which will easily thrive in the environment on offer. It also happens to be a type of fish that grows relatively quickly.
“We are looking to implement only natural methods of growing fish product making the process as nature-friendly as possible and at the same time increasing our chances of becoming the first ecological fish farm in Romania.” said Mr. Radu Cosmin Monda, CEO of AgriEuro Corp.
“As the fish farm will require substantial funding, we are working on increasing our reed harvests through the acquisition of specialized equipment and we plan to reinvest the additional profits generated back into our aquaculture venture.”
According to Grand View Research, aquaculture will reach over 200 billion dollars per year in 2020 and now far outweighs production from natural sources such as oceans and lakes. For instance, more than 90% of current shrimp consumption in America is from farmed and imported sources.
Fish consumption is growing at a faster pace than beef, pork and poultry, driven by an expanding, increasingly prosperous global population that recognizes the health benefits of eating seafood. Demand is forecast by the United Nations to outstrip supply in coming years.
“We are committed towards developing multiple streams of revenue in different sectors for AgriEuro with a view towards sustained, long term growth.” added Mr Monda. “Maximizing the value of our current 4200 acre property is our key focus and we will continue to update shareholders as developments occur.”
