Khiri Khan Province, Thailand

Who we are

Benchmark Genetics (Thailand) Ltd. is a Joint Venture with Benchmark Genetics USA, TRF Genetics and Manit Genetics as main stakeholders.

Benchmark Genetics Thailand (BGT) produces and commercializes high-quality P. vannamei broodstock and Nauplii, which are fully adapted to the specific challenges and environment of Asian producers.  From our biosecure multiplication centre, we distribute high performing Nauplii and broodstock to selected hatcheries in Thailand and Asia.

We are committed to driving sustainable local shrimp production, helping hatcheries and farms increase the quality and welfare of their animals. We focus on reducing the use of natural resources and supplying commercial lines specially tailored for the local environment. We aim to help our partners and clients reach optimal cost efficiency of their production, and achieve long term profitability in a sustainable fashion.

The constant R&D work, combined with fluid communication, allows us to grow and adapt our product to their needs and challenges at any given time.

The model

Our genetic program uses the latest genomic tools to select broodstock with improved growth, quality and disease resistance.

Following a strict health certification process in the elite multiplication centre in the USA, animals are reared and multiplied at the Prachuap Khiri Khan centre. This ensures full adaptation to the local conditions. It allows us to supply Thai hatcheries and farms with a locally produced, fully adapted, high performing shrimp strain.

Benchmark Genetics is part of the UK based Benchmark Group. A leading provider of solutions in aquaculture genetics, health and advanced nutrition (INVE Aquaculture).
