Marine Aquaculture

Oceanpick Fish Farming is a joint venture between Kames Fish Farming, a Scottish firm with over 40 years’ experience in aquaculture, and Akbar Brothers. It is the first and so far the only company to undertake a fish-farming venture in Sri Lanka. Operating two sheltered and ten exposed sea-sites covering 1,815,000m2 at Trincomalee on the east coast Sri Lanka, Oceanpick currently farms barramundi, a healthy delicacy with a high Omega-3 oil content. Other marine species will soon be added to its portfolio. In keeping with Akbar Brothers’ corporate philosophy, all Oceanpick facilities are run on sustainable principles.
