AgriMarine rears Pacific salmon in our solid-wall floating tanks. AgriMarine’s strategy is to demonstrate that its proprietary technology has the ability to raise healthy fish economically and has the flexibility to operate in diverse aquatic environments around the world.
The Company is focused on the rearing and production of Pacific Salmon – Chinook (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in British Columbia. There is limited domestic production of indigenous Pacific species despite diminished local wild fishery levels.
The hatchery and farm site at Benxi are stocked with Coho, Chinook and Steelhead Trout. Aside from AgriMarine, there is no commercial domestic production of salmon in China due to a lack of suitable locations and negative environmental variables where traditional net cage farms simply cannot operate. Through the use of solid-wall containment, solid waste capture and augmented life support systems, these challenges have been overcome. The Company intends to further capitalize on this significant market opportunity through the construction of additional tanks and site selection for future farm operations.
