Ocean fish farming, also known as offshore aquaculture is an innovative approach to marine farming where fish farms are moved a further distance offshore. Ocean fish farming positions its marine farms in deeper waters where ocean currents are stronger than they are inshore. Strong tidal currents in the oceanic farm sites provide natural flushing, thus preserving pristine conditions.
Aquaculture is the fastest growing industry in the food sector as terrestrial farming utilizes sort after land resources. Offshore aquaculture is a rapidly expanding industry in the world due to the declining wild fisheries stocks. It is a more responsible method of farming high quality marine fish, while safeguarding the wild stock in our oceans. Nearly 46% of the world’s fish produced for human consumption comes from farmed sources. Ample natural current provides constant water exchange while also reducing adverse environmental impacts.
