A Malta based aquaculture company has developed a number of highly efficient and cost effective recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) for R&D, hatchery, broodstock and on-growing operations. These systems are customised according to fish species and production level, and include anything from full project engineering to specific aspects of production for mainstream and emerging species. The company is seeking a partner for long-term collaboration to promote and market their system.
An international aquaculture R&D, design, engineering and consultancy company, with head offices in Malta, has its own proprietary recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) designs for a variety of fish species that cover those of major commercial importance. The company is constantly fine tuning the overall performance of its design and technology through research and client feedback at its demonstration and R&D facility in Malta. The entire RAS project can be managed through a team of staff, including coordination of works with various contractors. Using the very latest technology the company has its own research facilities where they operate a number of recirculation systems. These systems are a small scale recreation of fish farming facilities that can be provided to the clients. Studies using the company's in-house capabilities have developed new techniques for improving hatchery production, efficiency and knowledge. The system developed by the company is a unique recirculation system which combines numerous state of the art apparatus like: GRP fiberglass products Specifically designed tanks Saturation cones Specialist products All projects include an online monitoring system that allows personnel to continuously monitor the system's performance and provide troubleshooting support from the company's head office. After completion of installation, the company can provide training, continuous technical and operational support, and also personnel with valuable practical knowledge of how systems perform to begin the production of the chosen species. The company is looking for collaboration with well established businesses worldwide, with strong access and networks in local markets, to market the recirculation aquaculture systems technology to the local/regional market. Companies that are already working in the field of aquaculture/water/marine related fields, with strong background and understanding of the existing business models, would be preferred, however it is not a prerequisite. Partner sought should demonstrate long-term commitment to the business collaboration.
