OTAQ is a highly innovative marine technology company focused on the marine aquaculture sector. We have 15 employees in 3 worldwide locations; Lancaster and Oban in the UK and Puerto Montt in Chile.
We develop and continuously improve our products using our own mechanical, electronic and software engineers all with decades of combined experience in bringing underwater technology products to market. Our management team has over 100 years of combined experience in aquaculture, marine and underwater technology products.
SealFence is an intelligent ultrasonic deterrent system designed to deter seals and sea lions from marine fish farming sites. Proven effective worldwide we have deployed over 600 systems since 2014 protecting farms in Scotland, Chile, Finland and Russia.
SealFence uses a unique soundwave delivered through a network of projectors placed around each farm. These projectors work together to create an acoustic “fence” of protection that will often completely eliminate seal and sea lion attacks.
Many of OTAQ’s innovative technologies are incorporated into SealFence including Active Condition Monitoring (ACM). ACM constantly monitors the performance of the system, records it and allows full control of the system from a touchscreen located on a barge or boat.
But whilst the system contains some very advanced technology, SealFence is also tough. It has been designed from the ground up to cope with permanent installation on the most exposed marine fish farms in use today. SealFence is proven reliable with a negligible breakdown record backed up with industry-leading levels of support.
OTAQ design and manufactures high technology products and solutions for the global aquaculture, fisheries and renewables industries.
Using our group’s heritage in sub-sea technology and engineering for the energy and oceanographic markets, OTAQ has developed a range of products designed to meet the unique demands of fish farming.
Using a unique ultrasonic transmission developed by OTAQ, SealFence creates an acoustic “fence” of protection around your cages as a deterent against seal and sea lion attacks.
