Canada-based AgriMarine Holdings announced the launch of AgriMarine Technologies (ATI), a wholly-owned subsidiary dedicated to the development of sustainable, innovative technology systems and solutions for commercial aquaculture applications around the world.

To develop design-build consulting services for ATI, AgriMarine is using its knowledge in the design and construction of recirculation hatcheries, large-scale rearing tanks, management of water flows, fish culture and husbandry, and in the development of patented rearing technologies.

From land-based, recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), and floating semi-closed containment systems (AgriMarine System tanks), to water treatment equipment and aquaponics designs, ATI boasts an extensive suite of cutting-edge, clean technologies as well as components for fish farming. ATI's systems create fish rearing environments with economic and environmental benefits and are designed for a multitude of applications and aquaculture species.

“Our team of professionals understand the challenges and opportunities inherent in aquaculture,” said Robert Walker, ATI president. “ATI has an immediate market edge in a rapidly growing aquaculture sector.”

“We have designed, built and operated the most advanced and technologically sophisticated recirculation hatcheries in the world. We pioneered the AgriMarine System tank technology which we are now utilizing in our own farms,” said Sean Wilton, AgriMarine president. “Creating a dedicated company to capitalize on these technologies was a natural progression of our business model. We are now ready to work with local and international clients who want to improve the profitability and sustainability of their fish farms through the application of innovative technology systems.”
