INNOVATE TO PRESERVE MARINE ECOSYSTEMS

Ecocean is a pioneering company with a unique know-how: The Post-larval Capture and Culture (PCC). We participate to the restoration of marine ecosystems and promote a sustainable management of marine resources by implementing innovative projects and radical new technologies all over the world.

  1. Sustainable rearing

    PCC avoids the capture of genitors and minimizes the collection of wild fish offering an immediate and acceptable solution to marine ecosystems depletion. It is a powerful new alternative to overfishing for the marine aquarium trade and fish food markets in the developing countries and in the Small Islands Developing States.

  2. Ecological restoration

    Shoreline areas are more and more impacted by human activities. The solutions proposed by Ecocean contribute to the rehabilitation of the natural life cycle of coastal fish, through post-larval capture, culture and restocking (BioRestore) or by the installation of constructed fish nursery habitats (Biohut®) along developed waterfronts to enhance the chance of survival of fish larvae that naturally colonize the coast.

  3. Fishing and rearing devices

    Thanks to our patented fishing devices especially designed for capturing post-larval fish, Ecocean is able to build, operate and transfer this technology to artisan fishermen, aquaculture farmers and marine scientists around the world.

  4. Diagnostic uses

    The PCC is an excellent tool to study and understand the oceanic dispersal phase in the life cycle of coastal marine and freshwater species. In addition to provide new research thematic areas, the technique also contributes to the data collection about species that colonize coastal habitats to renew populations.
