Nature Resources Aquaculture Pte Ltd (NRA) is a company operating in the aquaculture space. We are a social impact company committed to providing farmed food fish to the masses in an eco-friendly and socially responsible manner, while meeting the financial expectations of our stakeholders.
We are the global master distributor for AME2 Pte. Ltd., the owner of the patent-pending Eco-Ark™ and Lift-Doc® with various applications, and a solution provider serving the offshore and marine industries. The state-of-the-art Eco-Ark™ and Lift-Doc® employ disruptive technologies that surpass current methods used in the aquaculture industry. Eco-Ark™, of various shapes and designs, forms the base unit of several innovative inventions that will radically transform the way fish is farmed in the open sea.
At the heart of Eco-Ark™ is a closed-containment system with a well-designed flow through technology. This floating fish farm is housed on a Novel Offshore Advanced Hull System (NOAHs) . The NOAHs is a cost-effective and sustainable transformational hull with various cultivation tanks to form the Eco-Ark™. This innovative system has many advantages over open net farming. It allows flow through, and can be towed away easily during the emergency states of algae bloom or maritime pollution. This is a breakthrough that allows mobility. Above all with the cleaned filtered and UV-Ozone sterilised sea-water there will be minimal mortality from diseases and no fish escape leading to higher yield over the yield of the current net-cage system within a much smaller sea acreage. This innovative concept thus achieves a higher productivity index and fish production yield with the use of lesser sea space.
The six innovative design models of Eco-Ark™ Floating Fish Farm have received approval-in-principle by one of the leading classification societies in the world, Bureau Veritas (BV). Among these are round-shaped designs customized for deployment in harsh open sea environments and deeper water. It is said by 2030, two out of every three fish on our plate will be farmed using aquaculture technology, much of it using open sea farming methods. Thus, there is a need to explore open sea fish farming and to do it sustainably using our Eco-Ark™.
Our design philosophy and vision for this invention is to be ecologically-friendly and achieve long-term sustainable farming using the 3Rs – reducing the use of fossil fuel for energy, re-using scrap materials for construction and recycling waste from fish production. In so doing, we aim to protect the blue ocean using sustainable natural resource management and cost-effective fish production. This is made possible with Eco-Ark™ innovative closed-containment technology, which offer better production yield using lesser fish feed, higher stocking density, better survival and less diseases and also the elimination of fish escape and net maintenance.
In Nature Resources, our vision is to populate our farm and re-populate the ocean.
