Aquaculture

Aquaculture is a booming industry, with a big future and room to grow. However, as laws and climate change, so do your risks. Trust a broker with the expert touch.   

Aquaculture is a growing industry, in Europe and around the world. As our global populations grow and our seas continue to be overfished, fish farms are becoming an ever-more important source of healthy, sustainable food.    

Unfortunately, the industry is not without risks. Natural, environmental, and manmade exposures can all threaten production and transportation. When there are so many factors at play, you need insurance you can rely on.   

At Howden Matrix, we provide comprehensive insurance coverage to both marine and freshwater fish farms, locally and internationally. We also offer complimentary risk management services, to mitigate your risks while protecting against them.
