Shrimp Hatchery


In order to fully control the entire life cycle of the Shrimp production process, Acuamaya has developed and manages its own maturation and hatchery facilities for nauplii and post larvae (baby shrimp production) under our own Maya Larva Brand.

For more than 20 years now, together with one of the top teams in the whole industry, this hatchery has been one of Acuamaya's pillars of innovation, where the combination of several shrimp genetic lines along with specialized genetic management programs, have led to the development of some very successful shrimp family lines which have been instrumental in the development of not only Acuamaya's operations, but also the intensive aquaculture industry of Guatemala. 


With a production capacity of over 3 billion PL's, today, this hatchery is considered one of the most advanced in the region!
