Offering low risk entry into the land-based aquaculture space utilizing clean RAS technology and strategic integration to provide modular farms plans supplying local Canadian markets.


With almost 90% of the global wild fisheries currently being overfished or mismanaged, it is critical that land-based, closed containment aquaculture farms continue to emerge as the natural and sustainable solution to the impending global supply gap. Our modular farming system offer a scale of production starting at 40 MT. Catalyst farms incorporate the newest technology in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) featuring low-head design resulting in sustainable operational and production costs. Our farms are antibiotic free and are non-ocean impacting. Contact us today about our “beyond organic” farm systems.
