02/05/2018: Ireland based aquaculture feed company rebrand

It has been announced that Pacific Trading Aquaculture has changed their company name to the shortened version, PT Aqua. This change will affect all of their branding.

 There are no structural or physical changes to the company’s activities or products other than the new rebranded name. Head offices will remain in Ireland with operational hubs in Norway, Germany and Greece.

 Having traded as Pacific Trading Aquaculture for nearly a decade, it was decided that as the company continues to expand into new territories and emerging markets, that a shortened and more recognisable brand name would be in keeping with their tremendous growth and evolving business model. Having previously traded in marine hatchery nutritional products from select high quality manufacturers around the world, PT Aqua has this year additionally begun producing their own range of species specific larval feeds in the EU.

 These feeds have received widespread success specifically in the cleaner fish production sector in north west Europe and PT Aqua are now looking at replicating this success in the development of species specific feeds for other international markets.

 The development and manufacture of these feeds is done in close cooperation with Coppens International (an Alltech company) who manufacture PT Aqua’s range of feeds in Germany under licence agreement to them. The combination of the R&D and years of experience from Coppens International and Alltech, coupled with the company’s extensive market penetration and close understanding of established and developing markets is one of our strengths which we will continue to develop.

 In previous news, the company developed a new health-focused lumpfish feed, called Atlantic Gold. “Two key ingredients added are “Aquate” and “Biomos” from Alltech, which have been proven to benefit fish health both internally optimising digestive function, improving FCR, supporting immune response, optimising growth and externally contributing to muocus barrier protection, which is the primary defence mechanism of an aquaculture species,” explained Ian Sutton, Director.

 The feed is slow sinking and RAS compatible, it also has cleanliness and performance characteristics in the tanks. Mr Sutton continued, “The feed is manufactured in Europe under licence to us and the factory is Global GAP- approved also. The feed is in stock in Oslo for immediate delivery and is receiving high praise in the cleaner fish production community.”

You can find PT Aqua at stand 81 at Aquaculture UK in Aviemore, Scotland between May 23-24,
