Wednesday, September 15, 2021
AquaMaof Aquaculture Technologies Ltd. signed a Memorandum of Cooperation and Interaction with the Russian Federation’s Federal Agency for Fishery (Rosrybolovstvo) and non-profit organization, the National Association of Industrial Aquaculture Enterprises.
In November 2019, the government of the Russian Federation embarked on a strategy to develop commercial salmon farming, including the use of industrial aquaculture RAS technologies. It is expected that a significant proportion of this commercial salmon cultivation will be achieved through the construction of large industrial facilities using AquaMaof’s RAS technology, which is optimal for use in salmon farming. Several of these major industrial aquaculture projects have already been implemented and are in the advanced stages of construction and operation.
As part of ongoing cooperation, AquaMaof will provide comprehensive support for the promotion of modern technologies in the field of industrial aquaculture and their industrial implementation in Russian Federation enterprises, with its high-end RAS technology enabling production to meet the constantly growing market demand for healthy, natural food and protein.
“We are honored by the trust that the Russian Federal Agency for Fishery has shown in AquaMaof’s RAS technology with the signing of this Memorandum,” said Leonid Goldshtein, co-founder and CIS director at AquaMaof. “We look forward to a close and fruitful cooperation, as we lead the way by implementing modern aquaculture RAS technologies in the Russian Federation.”
During the signing ceremony, senior representatives of the Russian Federation’s Federal Agency for Fishery noted that “AquaMaof’s innovative approach to organizing production and its intelligent, advanced RAS-technologies for the full cycle of commercial fish farming is of great interest to Russian aquaculture enterprises, and also very attractive to large investment funds and financial groups.”
“The use of AquaMaof’s unique RAS technologies, as well as the company's world experience in large-scale, industrial, land-based aquaculture projects, will enable Russian aquaculture enterprises to achieve maximum production efficiency and to produce healthy, naturally-raised products, according to global standards,” said Vladimir Mazanov, chief executive of the National Association of Industrial Aquaculture Enterprises.
