With our growing world population we are placing Earth’s natural resources under severe pressure. One of our most pressing challenges will be to feed everyone a balanced and nutritious diet while keeping our effects on the environment to a minimum.

High tech solutions to aquaculture challenges that enhance animal welfare and responsible marine practices.

Ace Aquatec is a company based out of Dundee, Scotland, that is focusing on developing and selling technologies that increase responsible marine practices. The company developed a humane slaughtering system that uses electric shocks that knocks out and paralyses the fish before they get killed. This method is stress free and also leads to higher quality products as well as better working circumstances for employees in processing facilities.

The second product the company has developed is an acoustic predator deterrent. Although using acoustics as a method to scare-off predators isn’t news, the way it is done is unique and more effective than competing products.

Ace Aquatec has been developing, refining and selling both of these products for a number of years and has recently switched to a rental model, leading to recurring revenues.

Ace Aquatec’s focus on developing technologies for responsible farming is a true fit with Aqua-Spark’s vision and values. This is further supported by the fact that both the predator deterrent and the humane killing system have won various innovation and animal welfare prizes.
