AgriMarine is in the business of producing fish sustainably in its proprietary, solid-wall closed containment systems.
AgriMarine Holdings Inc. is a Canadian publicly traded company (TSX Venture Exchange: FSH; Frankfurt Exchange: A2G, OTCQX: AGMHF). The Company has developed a new farm management system with the intent of providing solutions to the issues that the fish farming industry faces, with the aim of moving the industry forward and expanding globally.
AgriMarine is currently commercializing its proprietary technology for the rearing of fin fish, specifically salmon, trout, yellow croaker and potentially other species such as tuna, in order to satisfy the global demand for sustainable seafood production.
Commercializing the Technology
AgriMarine has proven the economics of its new system in freshwater at it fish rearing facility in China, where successful rearing, harvesting and sales to the market are currently occurring. The Company has recently deployed a commercial pilot, with the intent of proving the economics and viability of this system in a marine environment, at its Campbell River facility in British Columbia.
Our Business Model
From fish production to licensing, AgriMarine will also expand through strategic partnerships and joint ventures.
Our business model integrates all aspects of sustainable fish production, from providing fish stocks through consumer markets, in an ecologically sound production environment, utilizing our proprietary closed rearing system technology.
AgriMarine has developed proprietary technology that makes us the leader in advanced aquaculture practices.
AgriMarine's solid-wall containment systems are uniquely designed to float in inter-tidal regions or fresh water bodies, removing organic waste and using pristine rearing waters supplemented with oxygen to provide control of the fish culture environment.
Key benefits include:
- Control over the finfish aquatic environment
- No escapes
- No predation
- No infestation
- No pollution
- No pesticides, minimal use of antibiotics
- Waste management
- Higher feed conversion
- Energy efficient
- Lower operating cost
Our goal is to offer a sustainable and economical solution with a minimal environmental footprint.
Innovative Solid-Wall Containment Technology
AgriMarine's solid-wall containment technology was developed to solve many issues faced by traditional fish farming practices that are used worldwide. AgriMarine's system reduces local nutrient pollution of the receiving water systems through the capture of waste feed/feces and facilitates improved feed conversions; mitigates environmental effects on wild fish through the prevention of escapes and avoids proximal contaminations such as marine parasites.
