OUR BARRAMUNDI FARMS

Redefining Aquaculture

We designed and built two pathbreaking farms from the ground up and operate them with a highly trained and dedicated staff of aquaculture experts. Both of our farms have earned the Best Choice rating by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program.

VAN PHONG BAY, VIETNAM

Unlocking potential of the marine tropics

74o F

We brought our innovative ocean farming approach to central Vietnam because of its pristine environment and because barramundi is native to the region. We employ a hybrid system of on-land nursery tanks and offshore marine net pens to grow the fish efficiently and responsibly.

TURNERS FALLS, MASSACHUSETTS

North America’s largest barramundi farm

79o F

Our Turners Falls farm is one of the world’s largest water indoor water re-use facilities. Here, fish move through a series of progressively larger tanks as they mature before being sold to US specialty stores. Our dedicated staff monitor the fish and maintain optimal environmental conditions, 365 days a year.
