Aquaculture, or aquatic agriculture, is the cultivation of fish, crustaceans, aquatic plants, algae and shellfish in water environments.
These environments can be found in freshwater such as lakes or rivers, the sea and brackish water. We typically use sinking or floating sea cages, net pens, manmade systems or tanks on land.
That being said, aquaculture is more than just fish farming – we’re also involved in working with species such as turtles and crocodiles, stock restoration and replenishing threatened species. Aquaculture systems are producing fish for the ornamental fish trade, and growing plants and animals for alternative uses such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnologies.
Addressing global food security
As the global population grows we need new, transformational processes that allow us to farm the best fish in the healthiest and most efficient way possible.
Working with solutions
Today we are working on a range of ways to help ensure aquaculture can provide us all with enough food.
We work with pharma suppliers to help them produce the best vaccines and disease cures.
We work with fish farmers to help them look after and breed the best fish.
We work with fish farmers and governments to help them establish new fish farms.
We work with suppliers to help them produce the best, most nutritious fish food.
