Aquacultr firmly  believes that seafood production needs a reset if it is to continue to serve the more than 3 billion people who rely on it globally for their protein intake. 

Wild harvest at an industrial scale along with much of the current forms of fish farming will continue to face environmental, regulatory and social licence headwinds and if seafood has an abundant future it must evolve to be able to produce high quality, nutritious protein in a sustainable way.

Our Impact

At the heart of the world's food sustainability challenges lies a fundamental issue: the disconnection between people and their food. Nowhere is this disconnection more evident than in the seafood industry, where the practices of industrial wild harvesting and unsustainable large-scale aquaculture have caused devastating environmental, social, and health impacts.



Our land-based Aquaculture systems do not deplete wild fisheries or cause harm to fragile marine habitats. Instead, they allow fish to be cultivated in a controlled environment isolated from wild fish stocks, removing the need for harmful chemical additives and antibiotics. They require less land, water, and feed than traditional aquaculture farming practices including pond-based and sea-cage farms, and can be located both urban and regional areas, which reduces transportation costs and emissions.



With a distribution model for each of our aquatic farming sites that champions local to local sales and distribution, our farming sites reap the benefits of engaging with connected and conscious consumers.
