Main Activities

Open Sea Fish Farm

The open sea fish farm of the company is located at Dolos Cape at the Governor’s Beach area (34° 41′ 742 Β / 33° 16′  253Α, 34° 41′ 745 Β / 33° 16′  010 Α, 34° 41′ 939 Β / 33° 16′  299 Α, 34° 41′ 944 Β/33° 16′ 041 Α) 1 km from the nearest beach, at a depth of 30-60 m.
 
The fish farm has the capacity and the license to produce 1500 tons of fish a year. It is manned by well-trained staff and has state-of-the-art equipment. As the aim of the company is to increase the productivity of its operations and improve safety standards both for its staff and the fish population, it always chooses equipment of the highest quality.
 
The fish farm is supported by modern vessels which moor at the Archirodon port, where the company has its own coastal mooring installations and land installations at Tochni, near Zygi.
 
The fish fry (2-3gr), after delivered from our hatchery, grow in a natural environment of clear waters and strong southeastern and southwestern currents, almost throughout the year. The position of the fish farm is truly privileged. There is high oxygenation, which contributes to the good health of fish. The location of the fish farm in combination with the good management practices followed results in the production of healthy fish in the fish farm, which do not need vaccines, antibiotics, hormones or any other medicine.    
 
The fish produced by Blue Island Plc, in addition to their natural appearance have a wonderful taste due to good metabolism they have as a result of the above mentioned factors and also of the feed used. Dry food in small pellets consisting of natural ingredients, fishmeal and cereals enriched with vitamin and minerals. The feed used is 100% free from products or by-products of animal origin.
 
Fish grow under closely monitored sea conditions, in low stocking density in the fish cages (floaters with mesh) and when they are harvested they are placed on ice-water for immediate death. Subsequently they are taken to the packing house where they are packed and reach consumers, always fresh, nourishing, healthy and safe to eat.
