Colombian Aquafarming

Why Aquafarming?

As the world population grows, so does the demand for fish. Fishing resources are finite and 86%* of marine fish stocks are
either fully exploited or overfished. The solution? Aquafarming.
About one in every two fish consumed worldwide is farm-raised. The faster the aquaculture industry grows, the greater its potential impact on the environment and local communities. And Pezco is here to assist in this grow.

PezCo is Part of The Answer … The Answer is Colombia.

Why Colombia?

  • Optimal geographical location: Free from hurricanes and typhoons and is close to the main consumption hubs.
  • Extensive water resources: Colombia ranks third in world water resources and produces more fresh water than India or the continental United States.
  • Lack of seasons: Weather and water temperature are fairly constant making production possible all year round.
  • Available lands: Aquaculture regions include an estimate area of 370,658 acres available for production.
  • Steady fish production growth: Colombia’s fish production has shown a steady growth over the last 10 years.
