DISCOVER OUR SITES

Created in 1992, Acquadea, part of the Gloria Maris Group, enjoys an exceptional location in the clear waters of Corsica. Combining know-how and quality commitments, the producer wants to be respectful of the environment and provides regular environmental monitoring of the marine environment by STARESO (Oceanographic and Submarine Research Station based in Calvi). The 3 sites, located in the bay of Ajaccio (site classified zone NATURA 2000) and Propriano, offer exceptional marine resources. Acquadea produces Label Rouge sea bass, gilthead seabream and salmon sea.
Campomoro Bay is ideally located at the extreme south-west of the Gulf of Valinco in southern Corsica. Thanks to the richness of the ocean currents, oxygen circulates constantly in the cages, assuring the fish a quality of life similar to that of the wild fishes. The Campomoro Marine Farm produces sea bass and sea bream, in accordance with very strict specifications, and a 100% natural food. Thus, very low densities of fish in the cages and artisanal methods give the fish a well-being essential for its good growth. The Campomoro Marine Farm produces 150 tons of fish a year.

QUALITY: A TRADEMARK

Benefiting from different labels, Acquadea (Gloria Maris Groupe) has established itself as a leader in high-end aquaculture on the European market. This ultra fresh fish (no stock) is fished to order and delivered a few hours after crating. With 3 fishing / week Acquadea ensures regular production throughout the year.


OUR SPECIES

Sea bream

The sea bream lives in areas with sandy bottom or sometimes rocky, with vegetation. It does not go down more than 30-40 meters deep. Euryhaline fish enduring large variations in salinity: it is found in the mouths of rivers, in brackish ponds and in lagoons with reduced salinity. The sea bream is very sensitive to cold so sudden cooling can kill many. It protects herself by descending to greater depths.
