Our aim is to provide innovative, pragmatic solutions to aquacultural challenges. We have over 15 years of hands on experience working in the field and have built up extensive strategic and practical knowledge in all areas of bivalve mollusc production. We also work with a team of associates whose expertise span the full spectrum of aquaculture production. Our mission is to utilise the lessons learnt by our time in the industry to assist others in driving their projects forward.


We believe that aquaculture has a pivotal role to play in providing sustainable food and environmental security for current and future generations. As such, we wish to assist any initiatives, from small scale, local community projects to national strategic schemes, that aim to use aquaculture to help feed the world's population in a responsible and ecologically sensitive fashion.

Founder and Principal

I managed a multi-site aquaculture production facility, the Duchy of Cornwall oyster & mussel farm, for 12 years. When we took over, there had been no oyster farming activity on the river for 25 years. I oversaw the production increase from zero to 150 tonnes annually, designing and implementing many innovative farming techniques and processes to enable this. Since then, I have worked as a freelance bivalve aquaculture consultant for clients such as the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science.
