A design of aquaculture pen which is billed as “the world’s most advanced aquaculture steel cage system” is set to be deployed in Scotland for the first time.

The Trident hybrid steel cage was developed by Poseidon Ocean Systems to cope with high energy conditions off the coast of British Columbia. It uses flexible HDPE pipes to improve safety and stability, while lowering the overall operational costs of salmon farming. The new design has been ordered by salmon producer Loch Duart, through aquaculture distributor Trimara Services.

“We trust Trimara’s ability to deliver,” said Mark Warrington, managing director of Loch Duart, in a press release. “We want to be close to our fish and these cages will let us continue with our commitment to providing best-in-class husbandry while improving the working environment for our team.”
