Sustainability

Natural waters are on the edge of overfishing, while consumer demand is constantly growing for healthy, tasty, fresh fish. According to the WWF, 88% of fish stocks in the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea are overfished.

Water cage methodologies can increase some production but are limited to certain locations and suffer from elevated exposure to environmental pollution.

We want tasty food. We want eco-friendly, safe, and healthy. We want SilGen.

The Big Step

We are currently standardising the production protocols to make SilGen mass production available for licensed farmers anywhere in the World. We are setting up reference farms that demonstrate production yields, quality standards, and economy of operation.

SilGen will be commercialised under a franchise brand, ensuring investment-light, fast growth and strong scalability. Our technology has the power to transform the European fish supply sector and drive consumer habits towards high quality, healthy, sustainable local produce, while alleviating EU reliance on imports and drastically slashing the environmental footprint.

SilGen Solution

SilGen is a highly efficient aquaculture farming system that yields premium quality fish guaranteed free of contaminants. The production is fully sustainable, can be operated under all geographic and climate conditions, and offers 200% productivity vs traditional methods.

SilGen mass production relies on cutting-edge technology combining intensive production capability of our newly domesticated, predatory European catfish species, a scientifically formulated feed, and precise production methodology that has been perfected over a decade.

The result: premium quality,
nutritious fish filet accessible for all.

Our vision of fish production

SilGen offers a complete fish farming system of highly efficient aquaculture for mass production of premium quality fish that is guaranteed free of contaminants. Our technology is highly sustainable, can be operated under any geographical and climatic conditions, and offers 200% productivity vs traditional methods. 

The SilGen solution builds on the novel opportunity offered by the comprehensive package of a newly domesticated predatory species of the native European catfish, scientifically formulated feed, and an elaborate production technology that has been perfected over a decade, now ready for deployment. 

The SilGen project will feature real-life piloting, tech standardisation, operational protocols for different environmental conditions, business management, advanced feed formulation and species optimisation, as well as marketing and commercial preparatory actions.

The Small Print

Most countries have large pond systems for production of freshwater fish. In traditional fish farming methods, table fish production is carried out in 3-year cycles, using 3 water fill-ups and 3 harvests with full draining of the ponds, as well as 2 storages in wintering ponds. This consumes a lot of energy, water, and labour; as well as an arduous 3-year long business cycle with long-term compound risk. Using this old method, the high-value predatory fish – like the catfish – are raised in carp-dominated polycultures in low quantities, less than 3-4% of total bulk. This old technique is based on fertilizing the pond water by using organic manure, which leads to rapid organic pollution of the effluent water, damaging the ecosystem.

In contrast, we have developed and piloted a new water- and energy saving fish farming method to establish a new standard in the food sector by enabling production of the premium quality European catfish at affordable cost. Our technology relies on our proprietary breed of the esteemed European catfish, using various combinations of cage/tank/open cultures and different recirculation systems installed in modified traditional carp ponds. Different types of feed to augment the effects of the controlled environment were also tested, leading to the identification of innovative formulation principles forming the basis of SilGen feed. The technology makes possible the high-efficiency monoculture breeding while drastically lowering economic cost and environmental impact. Elaborate combination of these protocols with our high-tech farming method gave birth to the SilGen system.

SilGen is a large-scale aquaculture production methodology that yields specifically cheaper, well scalable, and dependable supply of premium quality fish that is certified 100% free of contaminants so it safe to consume even for young children and pregnant women.
