A Minnesota company that has pioneered indoor shrimp farming has chosen South Dakota as the location for its first production facility.
"Though we're headquartered in Minnesota, tr? Shrimp is truly a Midwest company," Michael Ziebell, president and CEO, said in a statement. "Building our first Harbor in Madison reaffirms our commitment to the broader region."
Groundbreaking for the $45 million facility was expected this summer at the Luverne site. But tru Shrimp executives discovered a Minnesota environmental rule about water discharge could have delayed construction by one to three years.
Ziebell said the company's timeline is to build the facility in 2019.
Tru Shrimp now plans to break ground in Madison, South Dakota, in June.
