Aquaculture

A wealth of Aquaculture experience

The UCO team have been involved in Aquaculture from the early deployment of fish farms across Scotland. This experience is where the idea for the Foover evolved when diving in multiple cages. The establishment of UCO allowed the idea to be refined into the current patented system, which is in operation around multiple sites in Scotland and overseas regions.   

The desire to improve the wider safety culture and increase the use of technology has allowed the evolution of UCO and industry as a whole, where ROV operations have reduced the need for diving. 

Patented Technology

UCO are the sole provider of the patented FOOVER Mortality Recovery System. The system is proven in the field, having completed some 200,000+ dives. It is the only system capable of positive confirmation of mortality recovery, providing a visual guarantee and recordable video of the operations being performed, aiding the management of fish health and welfare. 

The company continues to invest in R&D to develop new technologies for the Aquaculture industry, with the aim of improving efficiency, safety and technological advancement.
