Anchored in the Fastest-Expanding Food Industry in the World

With the demand for aquaculture booming, lack of available space for fish farming activities is becoming a major challenge across the industry. However, opportunities lie over the horizon, away from the land, where ocean currents are stronger and nutrient cycles more desirable. The result is cultivated fish stocks that are exposed to more naturalistic living conditions.

However, venturing into increasingly harsh environments requires innovative solutions. Designing and deploying larger scale pens that can withstand storms and rough seas are critical to success.

Our innovative solutions provide our clients with the confidence to undertake projects that capitalise on the opportunities presented further offshore.

Securing Profitable Large-Scale Projects

Dependable and entirely secure anchoring is a critical component in every successful and profitable offshore aquaculture project. Typically, rearing fish species several kilometres from shore will add to logistical costs, so safeguarding this precious livestock and the local environment is essential to project viability and long-term profitability, no matter the size of project.

SCHOTTEL Marine Technologies has the capability to optimise anchors for projects at scale, including those that require facilitating fish farming activities in and around offshore wind farms.
