Locally Produced Fresh Fish and Prawns
The Virginia Natural Fish Company (VNFC) is supplied by the Virginia Aqua-Farmers Network (VAN). VAN is a new-generation cooperative enabling small aquaculture farmers, predominately in Southside Virginia, to supply locally-produced, quality fresh fish and prawns by pooling resources for production and marketing. VAN is committed to sustainability, and its products are raised locally in carefully constructed freshwater ponds without the use of herbicides, fungicides or algicides. This ensures that these well-managed ponds will not negatively impact the environment or cause pollution in surrounding waters. VAN producers raise channel catfish, rainbow trout, hybrid striped bass, and freshwater prawns (shrimp), which are sold under the Virginia Natural Fish Company brand.
