Our Farm

Our commitment to innovation spans construction, systems design, and automation, using advanced technologies and techniques to lead the way in this emerging market.

Pontus has acquired its 20,570 square foot future production farm in the lower mainland of Vancouver, British Columbia. The facility will be powered by cutting edge technology to maximize efficiency, quality, and sustainability. It will be retrofitted with state of the art equipment and technology.

Sustainability

The Aquaponic System

Aquaponics is a complex science with two functional aspects: aquaculture for raising fish and hydroponics for growing plants, in this case Pontus Protein Ltd. This symbiotic system sees fish by-products broken down by nitrifying bacteria that are then utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is recirculated back to the aquaculture system, establishing a closed-loop system.

AI & Machine Learning

Pontus owns a proprietary technology system that incorporates machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), called CEVAS™ (Closed Environment Vertical Aquaponics System). CEVAS™ is the outcome of years of research, development, and engineering relating to aquaponics growing. The AI can automatically fine-tune environmental parameters within the production farm to boost productivity, maintain the health of the environment for the plants and fish, save on energy, and act as smart security system.

Using Data Analysis

CEVAS™ utilizes sophisticated control technologies and collects thousands of data points every minute which are fed into the secure big data warehouse.

Automated Harvesting

CEVAS™ facilitates automated harvesting, and processing technologies that seek to maximize crop yield and ensure organic quality.
