WHO WE ARE
"Sometimes to do better you have to go beyond the familiar, looking for solutions out on the edge…"
(Paul Greenberg "The Fish on my Plate")
GiliOcean Technology is a hi-tech company specializing in innovative sustainable fish farming. GiliOcean Technology has designed and currently operates the world’s largest offshore single array fish farm in Open Ocean Production.
Established in 2004, GiliOcean Technology is a forerunner in third generation marine aquaculture know-how. Identifying the future needs and problems of the growing world population and industry. Wanting to make a change, the GiliOcean's team has decided to embark on a journey to transform the face of the fish farming industry, delivering a solution to the challenges that traditional fish farms face nowadays.
By incorporating advanced technologies into a traditional industry while simplifying operations, GiliOcean Technology manages to maximize efficiency and upscale the production of premium quality marine protein at open ocean sites.
GiliOcean Technology moves fish further offshore, back into their natural habitat, where the oxygen level is ideal and the natural micro-elements help the fish grow faster and healthier, with negligible use of antibiotics. While doing so, the company takes advantage of unused territories at sea, minimizing the harmful impact on the environment and supplying fish with superb water quality.
GiliOcean's key asset is its environment-friendly, cutting-edge technology, featuring a submersible single-point mooring net cage system (SPM), which lines up all the cages in a single array. By being able to submerge the entire system, the cages and the fish are not affected by harsh weather conditions, and its single point mooring allows it to rotate 360 degrees, thereby preventing it from polluting or being affected by external pollution.
