Aquaculture at its Best

  (MAURITIUS, 2/19/2013)

In the heart of the Indian ocean, in the pristine and purest waters of Mauritius, Ferme Marine de Mahebourg (FMM) is ideally positioned to supply high quality farm fish worldwide.

The company farms Red Drum, a noble fish, well known for the subtle flavour of its white flesh.

Often called Red Drum, Redfish, Channel Bass, Ishimachi or Tambour Rouge (Sciaenops ocellatus), this fish is the first seafood product certified Friend of the Sea in Mauritius. The Red Drum has a light, delicate flavour and a meaty texture, very close to the Seabass and the Red Snapper. The Red Drum fits to every culinary preparation : grilled, braised, cooked in fat fry, court-bouillon, steamed. This fish is Sashimi quality approved.

FMM produces both fresh and frozen products for the export market and can supply whole round, gilled and gutted, headed and gutted as well as close graded fillets and portions both skin-on and skinless

FMM has two farms located on the eastern coast of the Island of Mauritius close to Pointe aux Feuilles within the pristine sheltered lagoon that surrounds the island between the coast and the coral reef. The two sites were both selected after extensive surveys to ensure excellent water quality whilst protecting the environment.

The stock in the cages is fed at regular intervals during the day using feed supplied by internationally recognised suppliers. The feed is certified free from all artificial additives and genetically modified ingredients ensuring excellent quality of the fish.

Both sites are approximately 3km from the coast where the water depth is 25m and where the current is driven by the prevailing Trade Winds

The Company has a state of the art hatchery located on the coast at Pointe aux Feuilles which is also the land based Headquarters for the business. The hatchery operates on a closed system to ensure bio-security of the operations. It has the capacity to produce up to two million fingerlings annually and is designed to be easily expanded as the operations expand.

Ferme Marine de Mahebourg operates a state of the art processing plant located within 50 metres of the shoreline where harvested fish are landed.
The plant totals 1200 sq m and operates to the highest International Standards. The plant is European Union approved, approval number DVS/FP9/MU.

The hatchery operations are entirely geared towards the quality of the product in strict compliance guidelines pertaining to organic fish farming

About Ferme Marine de Mahebourg

Ferme Marine de Mahebourg, Mauritius (FMM) was conceived and planned by a group of Mauritian Entrepreneurs with a vision to establish in the tropical paradise that is Maurititus a top class aquaculture operation to supply high quality farmed fish products to the world.

These entrepreneurs perceive the project as a stepping stone to establishing in the region an aquaculture operation based on best practice gathered from around the world. Today their vision has come to fruition and a highly successful fully integrated operation from hatchery to processing has been built over a period of five years. The Company has been financed entirely by private investment and now represents an important step in achieving their vision to establish a world class aquaculture operation that is now ready to begin exporting by fresh and frozen products world-wide.

 The Company has a state of the art hatchery located on the coast at Pointe aux Feuilles which is also the land based Headquarters for the business

Mauritius enjoys a warm tropical climate year round and situated as it is in the middle of the Indian Ocean is free from environmental contamination. The unique geography of Mauritius ensures that the farming operations are carried out in a pristine environment for now and the future. A key consideration in all aspects of the company is to protect and enhance the environment to ensure the long-term future of the business.

FMM is ideally positioned to supply worldwide by both sea and air freight. Fresh fish is supplied by air with daily connections available worldwide. Frozen products are supplied by sea container.
