It includes the following main business modules: an enterprise consisting of a farm specializing in the industrial cultivation of trout, oysters and mussels, including specialized watercraft for collecting and delivering raw materials to the coastal enterprise, logistics infrastructure for the collection, accumulation, storage, distribution of fresh and processed fish products and shellfish.
