27/04/2018: Another stunning success for Ace Aquatec

Aqua-electronics supplier Ace Aquatec is shocking the industry with a continuing string of successes. At Aquaculture UK 2016, the company won the inaugural Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) award.

In 2017, the Dundee, Scotland-based company won the Innovation Award at Aqua Nor in Trondheim for its technology which humanely stuns fish before slaughter.

Now Ace Aquatec is in the news again, this time for being granted the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the innovation category for their seal deterrent system. 

The award is specifically for growth and innovation in seal deterrent systems, recognising significant investment in R+D and benefits to the aquaculture industry from those developments. In particular it recognises the importance of innovation for growth in the economy and reduction in conflicts with farms as a result of our cutting edge technology. Ace Aquatec are the first Queens Award winner from the city since a University of Dundee research team in 2004.

Our CageGuard seal deterrent systems use innovative sound wave patterns to increase long-term effectiveness against predators while also protecting the hearing of those predators.

“It’s a great honour to receive the Queen’s Award, said CEO Nathan Pryce-Carter. “We were recognised for the technology innovation of our seal deterrents, and also for the role our research and development has played in the growth of the Scottish economy. Animal welfare is an incredibly important issue, and we’re proud to be playing a part in helping our aquaculture customers excel in this area with a more humane approach to predator deterrence.”

This latest honour allows the Scottish firm to display the Queen’s Award flag at its main office, and use the emblem on all marketing materials. The awards are valid for five years. Award winners are invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace to be held later this year.
