Our stringent, environmentally sound methods ensure quality and traceability all the way from egg to market.

We have an active research and development program within our firm and work in collaboration with universities and government agencies to continually develop and refine economically feasible and environmentally sustainable production methods using recirculation technology. Our research program provides a platform for scientists, students, and members of the industry to test theories and production methods for all aspects of finfish aquaculture in a controlled environment. Our staff has over 50 years of experience investigating ways to increase the productivity of indoor production systems while reducing capital, energy, and labor costs. The development of these systems and production strategies will increase diversity in the aquaculture industry, increase employment opportunities for rural America, and enhance food bio-security.
