Situated in Singapore waters in the east coast of Pulau Tekong, Prime Seafarm is a floating farm half-an-hour by boat from Changi Village. The seafarm was acquired from its previous owner for its conducive environment for Aquaculture. It is away from crowded human settlements where the currents are stronger and relatively less exposed to Algae Boom (Red Tide) that is a common threat to farms located in the eastern coast of Singapore. A mangrove swamp nearby helps to maintain water quality through filtering pollutants and sediments present in the water flowing through it.
Prime Seafarm uses renewable energy and maintains biodiversity. It is equipped with solar panels to provide clean energy for operations of farming machinery, equipment, office and living areas. It uses seawater treatment system to desalinate seawater and collects rain water for general cleaning purposes.
While Prime Aqua Sea Farm relies on sea cages to nurture its fishes, it also taps on a whole range of modern technology to enhance productivity and foster a conducive workspace for its farming community.
Modern innovations on the farm include underwater net washers, electric vehicles for transport, and remotely automated vehicles that can survey net conditions and observe fish behaviour.
