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 modular floating fish farm system on a Novel Offshore Advanced Hull System (Noah’s). Noah’s cost-effective and sustainable transformational hull and tank system has many advantages over open net farming. It allows flow through, and amalgamated with proven RAS technologies from land-based aquaculture, can be used in a sea farm during the emergency states of algae bloom or pollution. This is a breakthrough that allows potential yield to significantly increase 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 less 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 designs customized for large tank capacity and for deployment in harsh environments.
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.
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 materials for construction and recycling waste from fish production.
In so doing, we aim to protect the ocean using sustainable natural resource management and cost-effective fish production. This is made possible with Eco-Ark’s labour-saving methodologies and innovative use of technology and automation, which offer better feed utilization, and the elimination of fish escape and net maintenance.
In Nature Resources, our vision is to populate our farm and re-populate the ocean.
