Farm design, construction oversight and start-up.
Depending on the species you are growing, the size and location of your farm (land or sea), we propose the best design for your operation. We discuss it and review it with you until you are satisfied.
Hatchery design, construction oversight and start-up.
Shellfish Hatcheries might look similar, but the right advice in the design and equipment purchase can make a huge difference in capital investment, operations and production achievement. We discuss with you what you are looking for and we will provide the option that suits you better in terms of size and cost.
Hatchery operation and protocols evaluation.
Shellfish Hatcheries operate under the same principles, but not all of them have the same success. If you are straggling with your seed production or you are simply not happy with the hatchery performance, we can certainly help you. We visit you and carefully review your protocols step by step taking a very close look in situ of what can be improved. An expert fine tuning can make the difference.
Farming operation and protocols evaluation.
Farming is not about improvising or just letting shellfish grow by itself; the right procedures must be applied in order to avoid undesirable results. We visit your Company, make an assessment of your operation and give you our professional opinion. We can also help you to develop your specific written farming protocol.
Shellfish inventory audits, data analysis and forecasts.
Harvest quantities were less than expected? No surprise. Overestimations of inventories are more frequent than what you think. We come to your farm and carry out a complete on-site inventory audit applying strict sampling procedures. We analyze the collected data and provide a complete report of the farm status as well as a production forecast. Not being this enough, we help you to develop the right sampling and controlling procedures for your operation.
How much is your inventory worth? We can help you to define the right procedure to determine the value of your inventory.
