ÉAU is working with entrepreneurs, non governmental organizations (NGO) and indigenous communities on multiple projects in Quebec and internationally to conceive and develop aquaponics systems tailored to their needs. Discover some of our projects.

“Agriculture du Coin”

In partnership with Agriculture du Coin, the Urban Food Ecosystem (EAU) is using its expertise and experience to support the development of an innovative project based on aquaponic technology.

At the same time, the company is committed to strengthening urban resilience by creating ultra-local education and food production centers in the heart of the cities of tomorrow.

This project will allow ultra-local food production and resale, which are embodied in our aquaponic farm project integrated with a café and a processing kitchen in the heart of Montreal. This project aims to improve local food security by producing food on the island itself, using environmentally and financially sustainable methods.

The facilities will include aquaponic food production systems, combining fish farming and vegetable growing. In addition, the café and point of sales will highlight the products of our urban farm, thus offering city dwellers an authentic and responsible culinary experience.

Commercial and social aquaponic farms in Montreal

We are developing various commercial aquaponic farm projects on the Island of Montreal. Large and medium-sized, these farms are located in former industrial and commercial buildings, renovated to accommodate the production of fish and a variety of vegetables and fruits, particularly in indoor vertical horticulture. Depending on local issues, these projects also have social impact objectives such as public awareness, the inclusion of people who are far from employment and the revitalization of territories.

The objectives of these projects in Montreal are to:

  • Develop short supply circuits and contribute to food autonomy in Montreal
  • Vitalize and energize neighborhoods through local food production
  • Create positive social economic impacts for citizens

The Serres Hydro-Tourville : A greenhouse is diversifying its production by adding aquaculture production to its activities

The Serres Hydro-Tourville located in the region of the Center of Quebec is a family enterprise run by the same family for 29 years. As one of the first to have integrated hydroponic to their activities, they are now specialized in tomato production using this method. ÉAU works in collaboration with the owners to add an aquaculture production to their already existing horticulture production.

The Serres Hydro-Tourville aim to:

  • Promote the next generation of farmers
  • Make local, fresh, and healthy food accessible to the local population
  • Diversify the greenhouses’ offer by adding aquaculture production to its activities

An aquaponics farm for a better food supply for restaurants

ÉAU is working in collaboration with a family group of restaurateurs in the south of France where they will produce 100 tons of fruits and vegetables as well as rainbow trout. The commercial aquaponics farm will retrieve their energy from renewable energy sources and will allow for the development of R&D projects, such as organic waste recovery.

This aquaponics farm aims to:

  • Allow for the restaurateur group to become more food autonomous and to have easy access to local, fresh, and healthy aliments year-round
  • Develop a short food chain supply
