Sustainable Sea Products International (SSPI) of Rockville, Maryland specializes in farmed and wild shrimp from the U.S.. The company sources its farm-raised products from their sister company Global Blue Technologies located in Texas, which grows shrimp in the largest indoor recirculating aquaculture system in the United States.These shrimp (branded Copano Blues) are raised without hormones, growth promoters, or antibiotics. The shrimp are a favorite amongst retailers and restaurants for their natural, bold, and sweet flavor. The company's wild shrimp are harvested from U.S. Gulf waters by trawlers using newly designed doors and nets which reduces benthic impact, lessens drag, and saves fuel. All of SSPI's shrimp are packed and processed within an hour of the farm and fishing port.

SSPI embodies a multi faceted philosophy of social and environmental responsibility, in addition to reasonable profit for all members of their supply chain. It is that philosophy that makes SSPI a success not just with their customers, but with their entire team of employees from farmers and fishers, to processors and distributors.
