What is SONGA?
S.O.N.G.A. National Society of Galápagos C. A. was founded in the legendary Galápagos Islands to process tuna, lobster and other seafood. In 1,982 Songa moved its operations to Guayaquil. Once Songa re-settled, it was acquired by one of its present owners and in 1,994 invited another fellow-shrimp grower to co-owned the company. The combined operation assured SONGA with 70% of the shrimp sold.
Both partners own 5,100 hectares of shrimp farms which combined with the output of another 2,000 hectares of year-round loyal suppliers, assures an annual production of 14,000 tons.
As a responsible producer, our aquaculture farming and processing protocols apply the best environmental and food safety practices.
