Grow food without wasting water by recycling it continuously (100% no effluent discharges)
Qualified and locally trained staff working ergonomically, fairly payed according to performance and growth
New and disruptive technologies to sustainably generate high quality fish protein and greens to be replicated all over European cities
Climate Smart aquaponics modular system is totally adapted to climate change, either to mitigate the common consequences of food production or to keep producing in adverse climatic conditions.
Smart and sustainable urban farming delivering food right where it is produced, in densely populated areas, making it fresh and avoiding transportation.
Involve local community.
By not growing carnivorous fish, there’s no need for fish meal and, as such, we are preserving oceans’ biodiversity being wild stocks friendly, reducing fish catch and we’re not polluting the marine ecosystem
Sensitizing children, general consumers and entrepreneurs about the environment needs, sustainable production and healthy food consumption;
ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) certified fish being locally produced and delivered;
Very efficient use of resources (extreme high water savings; use of renewable energy);
No effluent discharges for the environment;
Less carbon emissions;
Ensuring food safety, freshness and healthy / natural food;
No need for fertile land / smaller footprint / high productivity.

Local, Fresh and Healthy

Fish and produce locally grown through a symbiotic ecosystem called Aquaponics and delivered through our food store and healthy food restaurant.

Sustainable Certifiable

1
Fish waste is processed by beneficial aerobic bacteria
2
Microorganisms convert fish waste into natural fertilizer which is assimilated by plants
3
Plants grow healthily while cleaning the water returning to fish tanks

Pure Biology & Nutrition

Fish generate the nutrients which are taken by the plants, which in turn clean the water that returns to fish tanks, without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers or any type of medication.

What people are saying after getting to know «Our high-quality standards require consistent and reliable suppliers for
fresh food. We will definitely try Fish n' Greens as a main partner.»
Vítor Fonseca
Executive Chef Assistant in hotel, @ Cascais, Portugal
«Usually I opt for organic, sustainable and local food. I’m curious about aquaponics and will surely give it a try. If it pleases me, I will opt to order fish and veggies online and receive it regularly at home.» Rita Saraiva
Trainer and Lawyer, @ Lisbon, Portugal
«Of course I care about what my family and I eat. Unfortunately, the offer is vast and very confusing and I don't feel confident in the options I usually make. Fish n 'Greens seems to be the solution to my problems! Reliability, proximity, convenience and (I hope) price not higher than fresh organic food...» Júlio Martins
IT Department Manager, @ Lisbon, Portugal
«Let me know when Fish n' Greens is ready to deliver the first batch of national fresh ASC certified fish! We are interested in distributing it across our European stores!» Member of Board of Directors of international chain of retail food stores, @ Portugal «Most of the vegetables and herbs I purchase for the restaurant don't have the quality and flavor I look for. The supply of organic products (vegetables and fish) is very limited and does not meet the regularity I need. Aquaponics is an option that I will surely explore and I plan to create sustainable dishes based on aquaponics ingredients.» Jaime Rodrigues
Restaurant Chef, @ Lisbon, Portugal
«I loved the concept of aquaponics! I can't wait to learn more through training and maybe work in the future on this or a similar project!» Joana Almeida
Landscape Architect (currently unemployed),
@ Sintra, Portugal
«I gave up buying organic for my restaurant! Expensive, lack of freshness, of quality and availability greatly affected by seasonality! If Fish n' Greens overcomes these issues, you’ll have me as a customer, maybe even for fish, if I see the quality you claim!» Guilherme Neves
Restaurant owner, @ Mafra, Portugal
«I buy fresh food weekly for my family. I am not satisfied with the choices as these foods no longer have the taste they had in the past and I am concerned about the chemicals used. I used to prefer wild fish, but now I have doubts about the pollutants and overfishing. That's the price we pay for evolution ... However, Fish n' Greens will be the evolution I'm looking for that will allow me to buy with confidence!» Rui Fernandes
Accountant, @ Carnaxide, Portugal
«Torres Vedras Municipality is very interested and committed in the implementation of Fish n' Greens, namely in hosting this urban aquaponics system in the city of Torres Vedras.
We believe that this project, which is based on an environmentally sustainable local production system, synergistically combines the positive aspects of hydroponics and aquaculture, valuing the territory in which it will be integrated, not only for its innovative character in Portugal, but also for the importance it may have in the economic, social and environmental development pursued by this municipality.»
Carlos Bernardes
Mayor of Torres Vedras,
@ Torres Vedras, Portugal
