Oceanpick, the pioneer oceanic farmer of South Asia, established its Barramundi hatchery in 2018 in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka. As South Asia’s first commercial scale oceanic farmer, Oceanpick understood the requirement of high quality, strong, fast growing fingerlings for farmers. As open sea-cage operators, exposed to extreme monsoon weather conditions, the fingerlings we produce have to withstand tough conditions.
Hence the value of our hatchery system which combines both flow through and a unique reuse systems ensuring sufficient exposure to open conditions right from the word go. This is in stark contrast to hatcheries operating a full RAS or fresh water systems in very sterile conditions, sometimes in land locked areas – unsuited to the conditions the fingerlings will encounter later as juveniles and as adults in more open grow out systems.
