Cell Aquaculture History

The Cell seafood growing system first commenced development early in 1997 when Perryman Leach (Chairman - Cell Aqua) identified ‘a massive window of opportunity’. His engineering background and extensive experience of intensive farming, led him to question if these tried and proven farming methods, could be replicated in the seafood industry.

Mr Leach commenced his intensive research and travelled the world extensively, researching and analysing leading aquaculture methods and systems, highlighting the main advantages and disadvantages of each. He was aware of the increasing pressures on the global seafood industry and the compounding environmental issues inherent with existing aquaculture. So he began the intensive development of what is now know as the Cell system. With all of the Cell objectives proven Cell Aquaculture Ltd now introduce this technology and the “Hatch to Dispatch” concept to the world market.
