Marine Growers (Atlantic Abalone)
As a subsidiary of Premier Fishing (Pty) Ltd, Marine Growers owns an abalone farm that produces cultivated abalone (locally known as “perlemoen”) for the export market. Due to the high demand for South Africa’s “Haliotis Midae” species of abalone, aggressive poaching in local waters continues to threaten the balance of the oceanic ecosystem and the survival of the species. Based in Gansbaai in the Western Cape, the farm does much to ensure the sustainability of the species and make a contribution to international trade while also representing a viable and highly profitable investment opportunity. The growth of the business as well as investment into new activities in aquaculture is a priority to the Group not only for its potential returns but also because of its contribution to enviro-friendly sustainability.
Marine Growers also owns SEAGRO. SEAGRO’s range of organic fertilisers has a wide range of applications as biological fertilisers in the agricultural, horticultural, home and garden industries. Produced from the mineral rich Atlantic Ocean, SEAGRO is the preferred choice of commercial farmers, horticulturalists and gardeners. SEAGRO’s range of economical fertilisers is approved as an organic input by the highly respected certification body, SGS. All SEAGRO products are economical, environmentally friendly and compatible with insecticides and adjuvants.
