CATVIS was founded in 1985, with initial activities in the design and supply of recirculation systems for catfish, hence our name, and soon after that for eel. Numerous systems were designed and built in the following years, both in The Netherlands and other European countries. CATVIS also diversified in the marine farming sector, rapidly expanding throughout the Mediterranean. At present CATVIS is known as versatile, yet specialized, supplier to the international aquaculture industry, serving many companies throughout Europe, the Mediterranean countries and several areas in the world.
The selected product range serves several aspects of “state-of-the-art” marine fish farming (e.g. sea bass, sea bream, turbot, halibut, cod, sole, grouper etc.), the farming of fresh water species (e.g. eel, catfish, tilapia, sturgeon, trout, ornamental fish, etc.), and shrimp farming (Middle and South America, Asia, Middle-East, etc.)
CATVIS operates from its main office in The Netherlands, from daughter company Catvis Hellas in Greece and from permanent base in Spain, France, Italy, Turkey, and USA thus ensuring a good access and proper service to the different markets.
