Since April 2019, the facility has been shut down due to the Singapore government's acquisition of land, leaving only a representative office in Singapore for transactions. Despite ceasing production in Singapore, all records of broodstock exports to Vietnam and some other Asian countries are kept at the Singapore office. The batches of broodstock exported to Vietnam include: Sale contract (including quantity information, price, time, place of delivery; warranty, etc); Quarantine certificate issued by functional unit; Certificate of eligibility for production; Records in the process of selecting and nursing parental shrimp.
