NewCatch BV has developed a tool for use in sustainable aquaculture. The tool will first be used for reproduction of the highly valued fish species eel, pikeperch and sole. We seek industrial/aquaculture partners interested in obtaining a license for ZF-implants in other fish species.
NewCatch BV carries out fish reproductive research, for instance European eel (Anguilla anguilla), exploring maturation and reproduction. ZF-screens has its own research facilities to study reproductive biology in several fish species.
The wild-catch of fish is declining rapidly while the demand for fish is steady increasing. This gap could be filled by aquaculture, provided that current technology in aquaculture will improve.
ZF-implant® is our leading product which can enable fish farmers to control fish reproduction in the near future.
