Akva Group has delivered the first of several new feed barges designed for the Mediterranean seabass and seabream industry.

The new Wavemaster AJ-150-MED is custom designed to meet specific market requirements for this region, both in terms of size, features and price. The first barge was delivered to Sürsan, a major player in the Turkish fishing, feed and aquaculture industry.

"We have supplied feeding technology throughout the Mediterranean for over 20 years now, and the timing was now right to customise our barge technology for this market as well", said Akva chief marketing officer, Trond Severinsen.

"Our new compact AJ-150-MED feed barge design incorporates our high safety, quality and design standards, while at the same time being very competitively priced in order to compete well against locally made barges in this market.

“We are currently building feed barges at three different shipyards in the Mediterranean and two in the Baltics. It is quite encouraging to see that other fish farming industries are adopting the same technology and scale of economics that have made the salmon farming industry so successful", he said.
