National Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority

Bio-secure Breeding Station at NELHA

Pacific Hybreed’s next phase development includes a biosecure breeding station at the National Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (NELHA) in Kona, HI, and expanded capacity in the Puget Sound region.

The NELHA facility is ideal for aquaculture breeding programs. There are strict procedures to ensure safety and security, and there is minimal shellfish farming in local waters, which reduces the possibility for the incubation or spread of disease. Deep-sited pumps pull cold, nutrient-rich waters to the facility, which can be mixed as required with warmer, nutrient-free, surface waters. This, with plenty of sunlight, creates the ideal artificial eco-system for growth at all stages of the breeding/growth cycle.
