1. WE WILL BE FIRST IN THE GULF OF MEXICO
Although the mariculture industry is a multi billion-dollar industry worldwide, currently there are only two mariculture sea farm sites permitted in the Gulf of Mexico with only a few small sites in the entire United States. Gulf Marine Institute of Technology owns one of the largest and only permitted mariculture platform system site in the Gulf.
2. WE HAVE FEDERAL PERMITS IN PLACE
We are the first company to permit mariculture in the Gulf of Mexico and in the United States. We have two state and federally permitted locations. One location is located 9 miles south of Perdido Pass, Alabama, along the Florida/ Alabama state line in 90 feet of water. The other location permitted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is 10 miles south of Port O’Connor, Texas located in 72 feet of water.
3. OUR PROCESS IS VERTICALLY INTERGRATED
We will breed fish, hatch eggs and produce fingerlings. We will grow and harvest fish. We will make deliveries to local seafood processing plants and than to worldwide distribution companies. Some fish will be genetically selected to be kept through sexual maturity as improved brood stock. These new parents will than produce higher quality eggs and therefore become better fingerlings for faster grow-out to complete the cycle.
4. OUR TECHNOLOGY HAS WORLDWIDE APPLICATIONS
Offshore mariculture can be adopted throughout the world. Our processes will have worldwide economic impact once fully developed by Gulf Marine Institute of Technologies These fish farms will provide local economies with jobs and add a sustainable, new food source, which will inspire national pride and reduce dependence from other nations for food supply. Our technologies will someday help provide some of the world’s inexhaustible need for protein being demanded by earths new 100 million citizens a year.
GMIT intends to make a big splash in the Gulf of Mexico to initiate the first commercial scale, 27.5 acre seafarm off the FlorAbama state line to grow million of pounds of organically raised finfish and shrimp. Gulf Marine Institute of Technologies, has been developing systems and technology, gathering expertise and permitting sea-farming sites for growing finfish in the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Gulf Marine Institute of Technology (GMIT), has completed, for the first time in U.S. history, the acquisition and permitting of a permitted site in federal waters off of the coast of Alabama. Cage systems have been designed to serve as habitats for the various fish species that will be cultivated. An offshore cage system utilizing jack-up platforms allows for a safe, stable, and centralized 24 hour management and crew station far enough offshore in the Gulf to provide sufficient depth and water quality.
Gulf Marine Institute of Technologies has several distinct competitive advantages. These advantages combined with our management team will lead to success.
