Who is Poseidon?
Cofounded by Matt Clarke, P. Eng., formerly the head of engineering for a major Canadian Aquaculture company, Poseidon is based in Campbell River, British Columbia on Canada’s magnificent Pacific Coast. Our team works together developing industry leading innovations.
Poseidon Ocean Systems is proud to be a world leader in innovative life support technology for aquaculture.
Canada’s leader in design, development and engineering of cutting-edge life support systems, we provide both aeration and oxygen disbursement systems to some of the world’s most advanced aquaculture companies.
Our marine life support systems are specifically designed to raise dissolved oxygen levels, protect against hazardous algae blooms and harmful plankton conditions and streamline both harvest and treatment operations – engineered to the precise specifications of your aquaculture project.
Many aquaculture tasks border on dangerous. Working in and around water, working alone and sometimes at night compounds that danger. The fact is, slips, trips, and falls are a major cause of injury.
Although it’s impossible to eliminate the dangerous tasks, Poseidon Ocean Systems designs net pens and cages to maximize safety and ensure that safety standards are met throughout the world.
For example, to minimize the risk of trips and falls we design cage systems with feed line piping and aeration hoses under the decking. This allows workers to perform their daily tasks safely and efficiently.
Furthermore, our aeration/oxygen panels are certified by Technical Safety BC.
Our systems are modeled and then built to work in some of the harshest conditions on the planet. As a result, we test the wind, waves, and currents for each location. And, after compiling the test results, the equipment is then modified to ensure that it will work effectively in those environmental conditions, helping to keep your workforce safe.
Aquaculture production interacts with the surrounding ecosystem and creates environmental challenges. At times local governments or groups express concerns over the impacts of fish farming. But, by implementing science-based practices that minimize stress, maintain a healthy aquatic environment, reduce disease risks, and prevent the spread of diseases when they do occur, we minimize those concerns.
Water quality that ensures fish can thrive is a key ingredient to farm site placement. But, events such as warm water or plankton blooms have a negative impact. Poseidon’s Life Support systems allow you to maintain the best water quality possible creating an optimal environment for the fish and the surrounding area.
Poseidon designs cage systems to deter and protect your workforce and fish from predators. For example, predator nets hung from posts protect against Seals and Sea Lions. In addition, we employ bird nets to protect from avian predation.
