Environmentally sustainable and responsible aquaculture

Fish Farming

More than a job, aquaculture is a passion for all farmers of the Group Aqualande. If our goal is to optimize the performance and                                     develop innovative new technologies to obtain high quality products, we never forget that this is only                         possible by being responsible.


Innovative aquaculture in harmony with the natural environment

For over 35 years, we combine our passion for aquaculture with modernity, tradition and sustainable development. We have developed a structure in the South-West of France with 32 farms fully integrated in their environment in the forest of Les Landes, Pyrenees, Languedoc and La Rioja (Spain), and 4 centers for selection and reproduction. With 10.000 tons of trout and 350 tons of seabass produced per year, we are leader of aquaculture in France.

Preserve the rivers ...

We always had at heart to respect nature which offers us an invaluable resource to our farming activity: water. True guards of the rivers, fish farmers of the Group are committed to ensuring the quality of river water they use:

  • membership of GDSAA (Group for Aquitaine Aquaculture Heath Defense) monitoring tools at the service of fish farmers to protect the aquatic environment and the health of the fish ;
  • achieving a IBGN on each site (Biotic Index global standard) ;
  • completion of two analyzes of water samples 24hrs a regular basis ;
  • participation in SAGE (Land use planning and water management).

And oceans ...

Preserve the oceans is also important for the fish farmers of Aqualande Group. In order to avoid exhausting wild fish stocks, we have found concrete solutions including consistent R & D work; thus we are able to reduce below 25% the use of wild fish from fishing in our fish farming.

Welfare of men also requires welfare of fish

Each fish farmer has a plan of action for health management with a guide to good husbandry practices, vaccination programs and ongoing concern for the well-being of the fish. Engaged in a policy of eliminating antibiotics, we have reduced their use by four in ten years. Today, we have the lowest rate of antibiotic use in all livestock sectors.

Man in the heart of our activity

Grouped together in cooperative Les Aquaculteurs Landais, the farmers put man at the center of all projects based on the values ​​of solidarity, trust, responsibility and excellence in our profession. In order to move forward together, each of our members of the cooperative is sharing his experience and knowledge with other farmers.

It is by our mutual efforts that we have managed to master the entire production cycle, from selection of brood stock through egg laying, fertilization, nursery and rearing of juveniles, fingerlings and growing up to all marketable sizes  with particular attention given to each stage and each specimen.
