Ace ‘delighted’ by Boston debut

DUNDEE based Ace Aquatec said it was delighted with the leads and opportunities provided by its first-time participation in the Seafood Expo North America in Boston.
The Scottish aquaculture technology supplier, which is looking to expand its international markets, introduced its award winning Humane Stunner Universal (HSU) to potential customers in North America at last week’s show.
The HSU is an in-water electric stunning system that can stun up to 100 tonnes of fish per hour.
Ace Aquatec head of sales and marketing Mike Forbes – who attended the expo along with commercial and marketing specialist Michelle Wildeboer – said that the company was delighted to bring electric stunning to North American lobster and crab farmers and the growing RAS market.
He said Ace also introduced its new Electric Fish, which is a predator solution for areas that have regulations in place against acoustic deterrents.
And another product that received a great deal of interest was Ace Aquatec’s biomass estimation system, the BioCam 3D.
This uses revolutionary time-of-flight technology to capture biomass in real-time and will be available later this year.
Ace Aquatec will also be attending Seafood Expo Global in Brussels from May 7-9 May (stand 4-6105) and Aqua Nor in Trondheim on from August 20-23.
