ACE AQUATEC SET TO STUN IN BOSTON
Ace Aquatec set to stun in Boston. Scottish aquaculture technology supplier, Ace Aquatec, is set to attend their first US exhibition; Seafood Expo North America to introduce their award-winning in-water Humane Stunner Universal (HSU) to the North American market.
Mike Forbes, Head of Sales and Marketing and Michelle Wildeboer, Commercial and Marketing Specialist will be in Boston at booth #1788 aiming to establish new relationships and talk to visitors about the unique benefits of in-water electric stunning.
Ace Aquatec’s Head of Sales and Marketing, Mike Forbes said: “The main reason we’re going to Boston is to help accelerate the adoption of humane in-water electric stunning in North America. The number of farms shifting to in-water electric stunning has expanded rapidly over the last couple of years. We’ve also been stunning salmon for the SSRAA in Alaska, for over a year, and we’re hoping that the Boston Seafood Expo will help us expand usage to other parts of North America.”
“Everybody has their own unique reasons for making the shift to in-water electric stunning. I’m looking forward to finding out what the biggest drivers are for the people that we meet in Boston.”
Ace Aquatec are also introducing a brand new non-acoustic predator deterrent – the Electric Fish – to help North American farmers protect their fish. This has been developed as a solution for countries such as USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand which have areas with tight restrictions on the use of acoustic deterrent devices. Seal-related morts have dropped to zero on cages in Scotland and now Ace are ready to start exporting the Electric Fish worldwide.
Ace Aquatec has gained international recognition by winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation, the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) award for Innovation and were the first Non-Norwegian company to win the Innovation Award at Aqua Nor in Trondheim.
