We are a group of marine biologists, scientists and entrepreneurs dedicated to addressing the needs of our oceans AND the needs of humanity. To date, in Greenport, New York, we have built and operate the world’s first (and only) commercial zero-discharge 100% recirculating aquaculture system. In essence, our facility is a controlled and self-balancing micro-ecosystem where we are able to grow a variety of saltwater fish wherever there is a local market.
At LOCAL OCEAN, our sustainability vision is focused on local production, regional distribution, nutrient recycling and the use of water conservation and energy savings technologies. We believe that environmentally friendly and sustainable production practices have a dual benefit of supporting market demand for “Green” production while making economic sense and delivering the highest quality product to our customers.
