How do you design cages and pens?

Using simulations that emulate the environmental and weather conditions they face, we are able to design cages that stand up to and meet each project’s unique demands. 

How do you manage the chain of custody for the components used to build cages?

We utilize a software support parts management program which records and tracks lot numbers and serial numbers for each project. This program ensures we maintain a full chain of custody for all parts in a project

Yes, we stock hundreds of parts in our warehouse.

Do you serve both saltwater and freshwater applications?

Yes, we build projects and provide equipment for both salt and freshwater applications

What customers do you serve today?

We serve many of the largest aquaculture companies in the world, covering species from salmon to sea bass, sea bream, tilapia and barramundi, and are expanding into recirculating aquaculture consulting, service, and equipment.

Do you serve industries other than Aquaculture?

Yes, our products and services are quite universal. Organizations like Forest, Lands and Natural Resources, oil and gas companies and shipyards use our products including, cages, aeration/oxygenation systems and mooring systems.

What’s the difference between Oxygenation & Aeration?

Oxygenation systems are specifically engineered to raise levels of dissolved oxygen in the ocean environment. The flow rates of oxygen systems are typically much lower than an aeration systems. It is used during any phase of the aquaculture operation, from daily supplementation to increase growth and performance, to times of harvest or treatment when low dissolved oxygen levels can get to critical levels for the fish.

Aeration uses ambient air through a compressor that goes to a delivery system.  This air is used to mainly move water throughout the pen environment. It is also used in warm water temperatures to bring cooler water from below to the surface. 

How long have you been in business?

Poseidon incorporated in 2015 and our management team has over 35 years of industry experience.
