About Us

We believe there is a better way to grow fish.

Global Challenges

The human population and middle class are growing rapidly. People want to eat healthier, but legacy land-based approaches to protein production cannot meet these demands. 99% of our liquid water is in the oceans. We must become better stewards of this resource.

 

Our Perspective

We believe that preserving the environment, feeding the world, and creating international economic growth can be synergistically aligned. Our oceans are immensely valuable but have been abused with overfishing and pollution. Sustainable mariculture allows the oceans to be cultivated in a perpetual and responsible way to produce food and economic growth.

Changing an Industry

Conventional aquaculture has been plagued by the challenges of pollution, escapes, antibiotic abuses, low quality products, poor feed conversion and more. Forever Oceans was designed to address these issues with a key focus on sustainability, scalability, traceability, and quality.
