Welcome to Eco Blue Seafood and thank you for showing interest in our quest to create a sustainable food source for the global population, whilst doing good for the environment and the world we live in. At Eco Blue Seafood we pride ourselves on providing aquaculture farmed premium quality seafood and building a healthy business that allows us to give back to the local community that makes it all possible.


Eco Blue Seafood has chosen the Southeast Asian region as the location for the production setup. This decision is based upon an analysis of the business environment, financial incentives, local environment, water quality, and logistics to key markets.

Company research has identified the following major advantages of this region:

  • Commercial Mud Crab aquaculture production is underdeveloped in the region but traditional farming experience is in abundance
  • The region is a hub for Asian seafood trade
  • Easy access and airfreight to key markets like China, Hong Kong and Singapore
  • Ideal water and weather conditions for pond-based Mud Crab aquaculture production
  • Costs are low but labor is very competent
  • Local communities are in large part represented by people who are traditional fishermen or familiar with aquaculture from shrimp and fish farming
  • Interesting tax incentives and free trade zones (FTZ)
  • Vast land areas dedicated to pond- based aquaculture are available
  • Both local governments and the national government’s Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries are very keen on the Eco Blue Seafood approach and the “Hatchery2Harvest” concept
  • Heavy educational and research focus on aquaculture and aquaculture related technologies

Sustainable Production

Eco Blue Seafood is going to establish its own hatchery in order to secure strictly controlled breeding in a clean environment, where crablets are hatched and matured. A simple re-circulation system runs from the ponds, filtering the water through sand filters. The sand bed is filled with marine worms that eat the organic matter and algae waste from the ponds, where the crabs are bred. The worms ensure that the water in the sand filter does not get blocked.

Furthermore, the company wants to grow seaweed (Gracilaria or Agaro-phytic seaweed) and fish in the ponds. The fish is the most important part of the crab diet. By breeding our own fish, Eco Blue Seafood ensures that the quality and the freshness of the crab diet is the best. On top of that, the fish serve the purpose of keeping the ponds clean whilst also adding oxygen.

The seaweed functions as a natural hiding place and camouflage for the crabs, shielding them from stress during the stages of their growth where they are most vulnerable. The seaweed also provides shade for the crabs during the very warm periods. Commercially the seaweed can be sold or used in the production of Agar-Agar, which is an organic food thickening supplement used in the ever-growing market for vegan food. The adult fish, the marine worms and the seaweed provide the crabs with a clean and healthy dietary supplement as well as optimal water quality.

At Eco Blue Seafood we believe in giving back to nature as well as the local community. That is why the company has approach local authorities in an attempt to collaborate on making sure the wild population of Mud Crabs will continue to exist. Through our own production of seed, we will dedicate some to be put into the wild. Eco Blue Seafood will also partner with solar power companies in order to build solar parks to power the production and supply excess capacity into the local grid, thereby helping the local community making the change to renewable energy sources.

Social Responsibility

At Eco Blue Seafood we are well aware, that we need to build a commercially healthy business, first and foremost, but at the same time, we wish to do things differently and better, even though it might initially represent slightly higher costs. We wish to set a new standard for the Mud Crab aquaculture industry, regarding not only the utilization of present and future technology, but also by using our business to do good and give back to the aquaculture industry and the local community.

Eco Blue Seafood will establish a commercial and sustainable production and sales of live Mud Crabs, based on a Scandinavian approach, not only to the quality and ingenuity of production technology but also to the social responsibility with regards to protecting the local marine environment and the over-fished wild stock. We are working closely with the local Departments of Fisheries in order to join forces in bringing the Mud Crab back to its natural habitat.

Eco Blue Seafood wants to take an active part in the local community providing the backbone of our production. Apart from potentially creating thousands of skilled and unskilled local jobs, the project also contributes to economic growth, exports and increased activity for local sub-suppliers. By establishing a future daycare facility, we will make it possible for both men and women to get a job at Eco Blue Seafood, should they wish to do so.


At Eco Blue Seafood we expect to create thousands of jobs and an improved work/life balance for local farmers and employees. In the future, a private fund will be set up by Eco Blue Seafood to promote the education of locals in the communities where the company operates. This to the benefit of both the local community in general, but also to our company if any of these people should go on to become part of our team of skilled employees.

Eco Blue Seafood will be collaborating closely with local universities and research facilities to promote best practice sharing and onsite R&D for continuous innovation, again benefiting both Eco Blue Seafood and the broad aquaculture industry.

We will be utilizing Danish technology and know-how to improve hatchery capacity and promote sustainable production whilst bringing the Mud Crab back to its natural habitat, across the Southeast Asian region. Eco Blue Seafood will also be using these innovative approaches to create an optimal and chemical-free hatchery and grow-out ecosystem, benefiting the quality of the product and the local marine environment.

Local Research and Development

Eco Blue Seafood already enjoys a lot of respect and goodwill in Southeast Asia. Both because of our commercial plans, but even more so because of our intentions to share knowledge and co-create with local industry players. Apart from our collaboration with national Departments of Fisheries, we are also venturing into both technology and biology-related local partnerships with the local aquaculture and marine universities. At Eco Blue Seafood, we hope to be able to hire a lot of young aquaculture talent as a result of these partnerships.

We also have major plans to do mutually beneficial research with and between Danish and Southeast Asian universities, in order to test new production and hatching methods and allow scientists to do research projects within the facilities of Eco Blue Seafood.
