The high demand for beche-de-mer in Asia and the systematic overexploitation of wild populations support the call for sea cucumber farming. Aquaculture is a potential alternative source for the market and can also sustain wild harvest fisheries. Over the past decade, efforts to develop hatchery techniques for the culture of commercially important sea cucumber species have increased significantly.

Key project phases

  • Hatchery
  • Nursery
  • Grow-out area
  • Sea pens
  • Processing and drying facility

A growing market demand with market prices doubling over the last years due to the depletion of natural resources of sandfish has lead to extensive research and the establishment of pilot project on sandfish farming.

Within the last years, sandfish farm has been successfully established in Vietnam, Australia, Madagascar and Maldives. But those farms are nowhere near to supply the market demand.

Considering the impending risk of the collapse of sandfish, fishery and the potential for sustainable farming, there is no doubt that within the coming years we will see large scales and fish farming development in the tropical regions. Combining the latest technical know-how for hatchery.

Constant, often research and development by our live in aqua-culturists will allow us to further expand and to realize an even greater production capacity and optimal efficiency which enable us to remain a market leader in this lucrative sector.

Sentosa Marine will help fishers breed and cultivate sea cucumbers.

Social benefits: Sentosa Marine pursues social enterprise that creates value for all stakeholders, holistically with communities and individuals to successfully farm Sea Cucumber (H.Scabra) and care for the environment and their communities.

Why Marine Cultivation?

 Aquaculture refers to aquatic or animal farming, while marine cultivation involves farming species grown in marine or seawater systems. Cultivation now focuses on production and growth of animals or fish food for human consumption. Sentosa Marine believes that marine aquaculture offers the potential to overcome food shortages, provide alternative income for coastal communities, and help maintain marine ecosystems from excessive exploration. The development of this industry is a fundamental need for the future, both to meet the food needs of population growth, and also to protect the marine environment that has been under tremendous pollution pressure.
