SINGAPORE (Oct 5): Oceanus Group has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with local education institution Temasek Polytechnic (TP) to collaborate on training, research and development relating to aquaculture and biomedical sciences.
The MoU was inked by both parties today at TP’s AquaSG’17 International Aquaculture Conference and Exhibition, in the presence of Koh Poh Koon, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry & Ministry of National Development.
Based on the agreement, Oceanus and TP will collaborate in aquaculture research and development (R&D) relating to nutrition, disease detection, treatment and prevention, broodstock and seedstock growth, amongst others.
They will also collaborate on skill training for TP staff and students in Oceanus’ land farms, with research activities to be conducted within the Oceanus Innovation Centre @ Temasek Polytechnic, a centre, which was set up jointly by Oceanus and TP at both Oceanus’ farms in China and TP.
Previously, Oceanus in April 2017 established an R&D and consultancy subsidiary, Oceanus Tech, as part of the group’s efforts to collaborate with industry thought leaders, institutions and universities to explore sustainable and innovative farming practices.
“We are pleased to collaborate with the brightest minds in the aquaculture sector at TP, as part of our commitment to push the boundaries of aquaculture science and technology that is in line with our science-and-evidence farming approach,” comments Peter Koh, executive director and CEO, Oceanus Group.
“[Today’s MoU signing] puts us on track to achieve our vision to become a global premium seafood supply chain manager that is at the forefront of cutting-edge aquaculture technology,” he adds.
