He went on to state that the turnkey operations are going to be the key element in boosting NaturalShrimp’s production capabilities significantly.

It goes without saying that the acquisition is a significant one and the rally in the stock proved as much.
Back in November, there was another important development that potential investors ought to keep in mind. On November 24, NaturalShrimp announced that it completed the process for the establishment of a joint venture with Ecoponex Systems International LLC.
The letter of intent for the same had been signed between the two parties back in October this year. The joint venture is going to combine the technology owned by NaturalShrimp with Ecoponex’s Renewable Energy Efficient Farms (REEF) technology.
Considering the increased focus on renewable energy, it could prove to be an important joint venture for NaturalShrimp in the long run.
