SMJ boasts a team of skilled consultants adept at providing biological and technical services to the aquaculture industry. We specialize in designing solutions tailored to specific needs, ensuring seamless integration of technology and biology.

At SMJ, we have been involved in aquaculture projects for over two decades. Since 2015, our commitment to enhancing the services we provide to the aquaculture industry has intensified. Our evolution into a consultancy with profound expertise in aquacultural breeding facilities and their associated systems is a testament to our dedication. Our range of services spans from conceptual designs to meticulous detailing, ensuring high-quality advisory on technology, biology, and environmental aspects for comprehensive solutions.

In the realm of aquaculture, two pivotal elements – technical systems and biology – must be synergized. This necessitates a holistic evaluation for the construction or upgrade of any aquacultural facility. At SMJ, our team, comprising experts in both technical systems and biology, collaborate under one roof. This unique setup fosters robust interdisciplinary cooperation, enhancing both project optimization and customer service.

Our ethos at SMJ is leadership and proactive engagement. We centre our professional ethos on customer needs, task execution, and collaborative efforts. Our aim is to simplify the decision-making process for our clients by taking the initiative and offering guidance.
