To raise the freshest and highest quality seafood, anywhere in the world, and delight our customers.
DyneAquaculture is a systems integration company that has roots in advanced technologies that enable the production of large quantities of high quality animal and plant protein. These include alternative energy (wind and solar), alternative fuel engines, aquaculture and hydroponics among others. The end result of these disciplines is food production platforms which are localized, sustainable, and of the highest quality – and capable of operating off the energy grid if necessary.
The start of DyneAquaculture was founded in the concern for the security of America’s food and energy supplies. Our founder and CEO, John Bickel – as a retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel with a TS/SCI security clearance – has “security in his blood.” John Bickel and Vice-President, David Leis wrote a white paper on that concern which was subsequently presented to Governor Tom Ridge, former U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary.
“My company, Ridge Global has been working with John Bickel, Chairman, as he now develops the Dyne Group of companies. The success of this platform of initiatives including DyneAquaculture, will require the kind of leadership and direction John has always demonstrated.”Tom Ridge
DEMAND FOR PROTEIN
The world is preparing to add at least another 2 billion people by 2050 and the demand for protein will rise even faster than the population rate due to the accelerating growth of the global middle class. With this projected demand for protein underscores the burden a growing population places on key resources. These resources include food, fresh water, and energy.
DyneAquaculture aims to provide the world with a steady, high-quality source of protein with our seafood while being mindful of sustainability best practices (from the amount of water and energy we use).
DyneAquaculture’s intention is to build land-based recirculating aquaculture systems across the U.S. producing a variety of high-value species of fish, including Atlantic salmon and tilapia.
These facilities will form the core of a vertically integrated enterprise that will include feed production, fish processing, sales and distribution. As opportunities arise, DyneAquaculture will evaluate both international and broader expansion in the U.S.

WHAT IS LAND-BASED FISH FARMING?
Watch this short video from our partners at The Conservation Fund and the Freshwater Institute to learn more about how it’s possible to grow fish on land. Recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) are creating a sustainable, local way to farm healthy fish. This ultimately gives consumers a better fish choice that benefits families, communities and the environment.
THE OCEAN IS RUNNING OUT OF FISH. HERE IS THE ALARMING MATH.
From the Show: An Ocean Mystery: The Missing Catch. The estimated rate of decline of our ocean’s fisheries is actually three times faster than previously thought. Based on reporting, the ocean has long appeared to offer an infinite bounty of fish. But recent, more accurate research paints a far grimmer picture, with annual catch on a precipitous and potentially catastrophic decline.
