Fresh king prawns produced in what is claimed to be the world’s first 'clear water, clean energy' farm are now available for the first time for delivery to households across the UK.

Great British Prawns is now harvesting the warm water crustaceans weekly at its saltwater farm in Balfron, Stirlingshire, offering consumers a sustainable, locally-produced alternative to imports of frozen king prawns sourced from farms in the Far East and Central America, which travel on average 6000 miles after being produced using methods widely condemned for their environmental impact.

Director, James McEuen, said: “We’re really proud of our sustainable king prawns. Great British Prawns’ approach means that we are able to offer these with the highest welfare standards and with no antibiotics or air miles. By buying Great British Prawns people across the UK are supporting a new and sustainable approach to seafood production. But just as importantly, our prawns are hugely versatile and truly delicious.”
