Hawaii Oceanic Technology

Hawaii Oceanic Technology wants to overhaul deep ocean fish farming with Oceansphere, a system that has been patented in Canada, the U.S., and the Philippines.

“By farming protein in the vastness of the open ocean, we can be much more efficient than land based protein production, use no land or fresh water and reduce the carbon footprint associated with traditional fishing methods, not to mention reducing impact on wild fish populations that are already severely stressed,” Bill Spencer, CEO of Hawaii Oceanic Technology, explained.

Currently, the company owns a 247 acre site off of Hawaii, where twelve Oceanspheres produce up to 6,000 tons of yellow tuna a year.
