Our Company


Located in the San Pablo commune of the Santa Elena canton, Santa Elena province, Ecuador, since 1999 we are dedicated to the production of nauplii and larvae of shrimp Litopenaeusvannamei. In 2003, Texcumar S.A. It was acquired by Ing. Rafael Verduga who through a restructuring process and the support of a high quality technical and administrative team have made Texcumar the main maturation and larviculture of Ecuador with great popularity in the shrimp market.

In August of 2005 we incorporated our second unit of production of nauplii in the Monteverde commune and in 2017 our third production unit opened its doors in the Punta Blanca sector, San Pablo commune, this expansion process aims to better serve Ecuadorian market demand.

Texcumar has the largest installed capacity for production of nauplii and larvae in Ecuador, 300 million nauplii per day in three maturation facilities and 720 million larvae per month in its larviculture laboratory. This allows it to produce with the strictest mass selection processes in a closed cycle, a process in charge of the Genetic Improvement Program of the company directed by the PhD.
