OFISEQ proposes solutions for In the case of Offshore aquaculture by using a platform that allows to obtain a great control of the food distribution that reduces drastically the loss.

The solution they have found to provide immersion and emersion capacity is the Submersible Feeding, Control and Command Platform, allowing its installation in the open sea. This is the main innovation that differentiates this proposed equipment from what already exists in the market.

In fact, it represents the only solution that allows, in an efficient and sustainable way, to provide this equipment with the capacity to face storm situations and, therefore, to make possible the location of fish production cages in the offshore space.

Another differentiating factor is the original design of the Platform, which consists of several modules (central assembly core, silos, cabins, distribution tanks, etc.) intended to be shipped in 20 ‘or 40’ containers to reach their destination, thus allowing the Platform to be dispatched anywhere in the world. The Platform is assembled and launched using a small shipyard in the port of destination. This concept is a major relative advantage as the movement of traditional barges.


The equipments under development through the OFISEQ Project are:


  • The Submersible Feeding, Control and Command Platform, a structure that is intended to feed the growing fish in each associated cage, fulfilling pre-established routines according to the production parameters in play in each cage (species, temperature , stage of development, etc.). In addition, it intervenes in the control of the production by collecting several parameters from sensors of different nature installed in each cage, information that it transmits to the company office by telematic means. Finally, it constitutes the instrument of command of the ongoing operations, namely promoting its own submersion and that of the associated cages in the event of serious maritime storms, parking at a depth of about 25 m where production proceeds normally, returning to the surface with the associated cages once the sea agitation situation has passed.


  • The Submersible Cage for Fish with Epiplagic Behavior that does not deviate from the concept of the traditional cylindrical cage with HDPE floating rings, however, contrary to what happens with the existing models that perform the submersion and emersion operations in an uncontrolled way, which can lead to damage to the cage itself and cause stress on the fish with serious consequences, the proposed model has the possibility of ensuring that these operations are carried out in a controlled manner.
