Sustainable Aquaculture: We were Promoting it Before it Became Popular
Keeton Industries is an earth-friendly company. We work hard to keep our waters clean in a way that gives back to the earth at every turn and provide fish farming products and supplies to enable sustainable aquaculture. And that’s how we’ve been doing things since the 1970’s, as caring for the earth has always been important to us.
Our company’s leader, Jim Keeton, has spent over 38 years researching and developing environmentally friendly methods for improving aquaculture production and technology. Our biological processes provide sustainable aquaculture operations. By employing beneficial microbes to developing new aquaculture technology and solar-powered aeration systems, we put the aquatic environment in favor of the farmer. Our processes have been proven world wide We provide a truly viable solar powered aeration and microbial treatment/incubation system for sustained aquaculture production.
Traditional applications used to restore unhealthy waters are just a band-aid solutions – they require repeat applications and can jeopardize the health of pets, kids, wildlife, and even trees and grasses nearby because they typically use chemicals. We prefer biological products that work with the natural ecology of the body of water, restoring the balance of nutrients and enhancing the waters’ ecological systems in a natural and long-lasting way, which leads to a sustainable aquaculture process. Using oxygen to naturally aerate the water is another of our earth-friendly approaches that provides desired results without any negative impact on the environment. Even our aeration system cabinets are made from 100% recycled plastic.
Back in the office, we work hard to protect the environment too. Not only do we recycle most of our plastic and cardboard waste products, but we also ship our products in recycled containers to reduce the amount of paper products we use. At Keeton Industries, protecting the earth and helping to feed its children through sustainable aquaculture has always been an integral part of our business plan, even before “being green” was all the rage.
