Eco-Friendly Farming at Mote Aquaculture Park

Jim Michaels, Manager

Sturgeon Demonstration Program


About Mote

  • Est. 1955

  • Nonprofit, independent (funded by grants, donations)

  • 22 research programs on a variety of animals/habitats

  • Public outreach through The Aquarium, plus education programs

MoteAquaculture

  • Est. 2001

  • 200-acrefarm, producing food fish and species for restocking

  • Second-largest farmed caviar producer in the U.S.


Our oceans are at their maximum sustainable yield — we can’t catch any more seafood than we already are.

At the same time, the world’s population will increase by 2.6 billion over the next 45 years — meaning demand for seafood will also rise.


The United States seafood trade deficit is $10.4 billion — a deficit second only to oil and natural gas

91 percent of the seafood we consume in the U.S. is imported — and more than half is farm-raised

Asia

By 2030, two-thirds of the worlds middle class will reside in Asia — 3 billion people

China has already switched from being a seafood exporter to a seafood importer

China’s demand for shrimp alone will be 4.5 billion metric tons by 2015

—U.S. seafood consumption last year was about 2 million metric tons


  • Mote sturgeon are grown indoors — all parameters are controlled, allowing us to produce caviar with a consistent flavor and quality.

  • Our products produced in accordance with Country-of-Origin Labeling standards and are U.S.-produced.

  • Fresh from Florida designation


Caviar and Sturgeon Production every 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Consistent supply

  • Pollution-free — water supplied by well

  • Safe: Undergo federal and state inspections

  • Environmental stewardship is a key part of our mission

  • Remove fishing pressure on wild stocks; natural resources

Purchase supports additional aquaculture R&D & Mote’s overall research mission


Thank You! every 5 to 7 minutes.
