OUR BARRAMUNDI FARMS

Redefining Aquaculture

We built our pathbreaking farms from the ground up and operate them with a highly trained and dedicated staff of aquaculture experts. Our Vietnam-raised barramundi is 4-Star Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certified and also Best Choice rated by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program.

Greener Grazing Project

A seaweed solution to climate change

 

Greener Grazing™ is an ambitious, one-of-a-kind project with the potential to virtually eliminate methane emissions from livestock digestion by introducing a type of seaweed, Asparagopsis taxiformis, into ruminant animal diets. We are exploring cultivation methodologies and integrations with the barramundi farm.
