Participate in a healthy sea

We aim to put circular fish farming into practice,
and we need you to support us!

The Oceans at Work Foundation is committed to a healthy relationship between humans and the sea. Our focus is on the development of circular fish farming on land.

With circular fish farming, the fish for your plate no longer needs to come from the sea. Besides being good for nature, circular fish farming contributes to a sustainable food transition. And it is also extremely innovative.

Circular fish farming

Circular fish farming produces no waste products, is energy-efficient and animal-friendly.

In a specially developed breeding system, we imitate natural circumstances as closely as possible. The fish fry are fed a cocktail of live plankton. This results in vital animals, without the use of antibiotics. We call these fish 'free-range fish'.

Pioneering work

This way of fish breeding is totally new to current aquaculture. That is why we work together with Blue Linked - pioneer in circular breeding techniques for marine organisms. And we train young professionals who embrace the ideas of circular fish farming.

1 fish on your plate, 1 fish in the sea

Because circular fish farming follows the rules of nature, we can also release the farmed fish into the sea. For example, to strengthen natural populations or as a boost to biodiversity.

This idea of nature - translated by our knowledge partner Blue Linked into the motto '1 fish on your plate, 1 fish in the sea' - perfectly matches our goal: to make a positive impact on the relationship between humans and the sea.

After being awarded the grant for the Blue Polder 1 project (see previous news items), a lot has happened at Oceans at Work Foundation.

The foundation's board has been expanded to include a new president, secretary and treasurer. Conversation is underway about a location for the outgrowth facility for farmed turbot and cod on Texel.

The first priority is to build a hatchery at the breeding center, located in Hazerswoude-dorp. Here, fish larvae will be raised to fry (juvenile fish) using innovative techniques: circular and animal-friendly.
