SEALIFE Equipment (Pty) Ltd. is situated in Cape Town, South Africa, where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet, in a region where the aquaculture industry is enjoying a rapid growth. Marketed and sold under the SEALIFE brand, our seafood display and storage systems are primarily designed for professionals in the restaurant trade and seafood industry to ensure year round availability of live seafood. Our products are manufactured to the highest standards of quality and performance and provide for long-term reliable operation and ease of use.
Hans Smit, a South African aquaculture specialist and a co-founder of SEALIFE Equipment, developed the technology used in operating our products. His many years of extensive research have led to the development of the world’s first “closed-circuit” water purification and treatment process capable of:
• Sustaining live seafood such as lobsters and shellfish for several months within a storage tank and,
• Eliminating the need to regularly replace storage water necessary to sustain marine life.
By simulating natural sea conditions, SEALIFE systems ensure optimal long-term survival conditions for stored live seafood products without altering their taste. Testing conducted with a batch of 300 oysters stored in a OysterBar for two months showed that the oysters possessed better taste and superior appearance characteristics when compared to short-term conventional storage and display methods.
SEALIFE products have a proven technology after several years of continuing usage in the southern hemisphere and Europe. All our products are designed to satisfy the needs of both the restaurant trade and the seafood industry: providing maximal performance with minimal constraints.
