our vision & mission

The BioFishency vision and mission is to improve aquaculture productivity and sustainability by developing, producing,
and disseminating high-quality technologies that increase aquaculture output while reducing costs
and saving resources.

BioFishency was established in 2013 as a portfolio company of The Trendlines Group. Its initial goal was to develop a cost-effective, easy-to-use, water treatment system for land-based aquaculture. Today, with system sales, a number of
installations incorporating the system in place, and a growing pipeline, the Company is focused on increasing market penetration and revenue.
