Technology plays a key role in this transition, and Optimar is at the forefront, delivering state-of-the-art equipment and solutions for sustainable, efficient and secure seafood production.

The signing of this exclusive agreement with OctoAqua strengthens their commitment to the Turkish aquaculture market.

At Optimar, our commitment extends far beyond providing cutting-edge fish handling solutions and processing equipment. As part of the seafood business, we harvest large resources from the ocean and often see the effects of environmental pollution firsthand. We take our role as environmental stewards seriously.

With tailored systems from Optimar, the slaughter capacity at the facility will increase from 40,000 tons per year to an impressive 120,000 tons per year. This represents a significant boost and reflects the increasing demand for quality products in the seafood market.

Are you in the fishing industry, either with wild catch, farming of fish or crustaceans? Then you know that there are clear expectations from customers, the environment, and the market - to handle and slaughter both fish and crustaceans in the most humane way possible. Team Optimar can support you with our expertise of fish handling with care.

In the industry of fish processing facilities, seamless integration is the key to success. At Optimar, we specialize in bridging the gap between subsystems to create a cohesive and efficient operation. Let’s delve into what Optimar System Integrator is and how it can revolutionize your processing facility.
