The vessel can produce up to 3.900 metric tons of commercial fish production
Through its efficient and eco-friendly propulsion system, it monitors, seeks and follows the best water conditions for fish production, always maintaining the best levels of oxygen, temperature, pH, salinity and other important variables to maintain a high fish productivity avoiding areas of low oxygen, acidity, algae bloom, red tide and other risks affecting coastal aquaculture.
No need to be anchored to a particular area.
Able to move autonomously in the seas.
Autonomous propulsion capacity, reaching up to 4 knots, provides the ability to avoid severe weather or other adverse offshore conditions.
Designed to sustain heavy offshore operations with minimal maintenance.
The 450 tons storage areas, allows up to 25 days of autonomy.
Facilities for 6 to 20 crew.
Copper alloy meshes prevent frequent maintenance and cleaning, do not need mesh changes between 6 to 8 years, do not need anti-predator meshes, making fish production safe and allowing offshore production.
The copper alloy meshes can be configured as 8 cages of 25.000 m3 each (115 ft. long, 104 ft. wide and 66 ft. deep) or 4 cages of 50.000 m3 each (115 ft. long, 210 ft. wide and 66 ft. deep).
Oceanic vessel for global aquaculture, the system is prepared for full autonomous operations both, coastal or offshore production, seeking the best water conditions for the fish and thus improving profitability for the producer.

Head of project, Off-shore aquaculture pioneer. Manager and director of technology development in copper cages.
Since 2000 has worked on the production of large tons of fish in one of the worlds largest salmon farms (AquaChile). In 2009 was hired by EcoSea Farming to develop the copper mesh technology for the large-scale production of fish and open the market for this kind of technology.
After 7 years he designed, developed, implemented and placed more than 70 rafts with copper alloy meshes (Chile, Norway, Canada, Australia and Japan) of which more than 40,000 tonnes of fish have been harvested. Winner of the Chile national prize for Innovation 2011 and the Ibero-American prize for university innovation in 2012.
Pioneer of salmon farming in Chile, started commercial activity in 1978 with Coho Salmon farming for the Japanese company Nichiro. He develops and participates in the positioning and growth of the salmon aquaculture in Chile, highlighting milestones such as the first trout breeding in March 1986, the first export of live eggs from Chile to Japan in 1992 and several developments in breeding, reproductive management, genetics, biotechnology and Infrastructure. Participates as a shareholder and director in companies related to aquaculture, development and research.
Graduated as an officer of the Chilean Navy, Captain, fixed wings and helicopter pilot, weapons engineer, staff officer, Magister in naval and maritime sciences; 40 years experience in matters related with use of vessels in offshore and offshore waters. High command of the Chilean Navy and adviser of maritime and coastal interests of several companies and institutions of high national prestige.
Naval Engineer specialized in naval construction, Master in Naval Architecture University of Southampton, England. 15 years of experience designing and constructing vessels for fishery, military, fish transport and aquaculture. Vast experience in naval architecture calculation in reference of stability, propulsion and scantillon. Extensive experience in modeling based on finite element software for ship hull designs.
