“The Trident system is a breakthrough in net pen design and engineering,” stated Poseidon President and CEO Matt Clarke: “For the past 20 years there have been minimal advancements in steel cage systems. We believe our product represents a significant advancement in the evolution of steel net pen systems. It delivers a new level of fish escape protection and systems integration that will elevate Cermaq’s worker safety and overall site productivity.”
