5 pillars


Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems, Inc. (PAES) is a global services, equipment and technology provider for the aquaculture industry. Today’s PAES has formed over several years as a result of multiple strategic  acquisitions, including Aquatic Eco-Systems, Inc., Point Four Systems, Emperor Aquatics, HE Group, PR Aqua and Vaki Aquaculture Systems by Pentair Ltd. All of these companies had built strong reputations in the industry for outstanding service and commitment to customers, and because of those positive reputations, PAES has become the powerhouse it is today. PAES is uniquely positioned as the most comprehensive solutions provider for land based aquaculture in the world with an improved product offering and increased number of physical locations and expert employees worldwide.

In an effort to drive the aquaculture industry forward, we have created PAES W.A.T.E.R. (World Aquaculture Technology Engineering & Research) Center in Apopka, Florida. The center, which consists of 12,400 square feet of laboratories and fish culture systems, is used for demonstration, innovation and educational activities. Since this flagship facility has been open, we’ve successfully conducted multiple workshops and innovation sessions in the facility.  Thanks to the world-class PAES W.A.T.E.R. facilities, our workshop attendees are able to experience first-hand interactions with aquaculture systems and equipment; they can feel what a real day is like in the life of an aquaculture professional. We hope you’ll join us for an upcoming workshop to learn more about aquaculture by working alongside our team of scientists, biologists and engineers. If you’re interested in learning more about this facility, there is a digital tour which allows viewers to walk through the facility, stop and learn about each piece of equipment and so much more. There is also a live video stream where viewers can tune in to live events that happen throughout the year. Allowing our customers the chance to see the facility without actually being there in person is so rewarding and we hope you all enjoy it! Visit PAESWATER.com to learn more.

We also are making powerful moves in another evolving sector – the future of farming, or Farming Reimagined as we like to call it – aquaponics. In late 2015, we announced a new venture, the establishment and operation of an 87,000-square-foot indoor aquaponics facility in the former Schmidt’s brewery building in St. Paul; one of the largest commercial aquaponics facilities in the world. Through diligent teamwork and collaboration with Pentair’s team of experts involved in this project – from system design, to construction and execution of the meticulous plans, we’re happy to report that there are fish in the tanks, the growing racks are in place and planted and the grand opening was held in June of 2017. The farm is producing delicious, organic greens and deliveries to local grocery stores have been going well!

It is our mission to provide you, our valued customers, a complete and pleasant experience when working with us. We are doing this by offering economic and production benefits including, biosecurity, scalable operations, excellent water quality and contaminant-free products. In addition, our RAS are also environmentally sustainable with a small water requirement and space footprint.

Today’s modern aquaculture farmer needs a partner that is able to help with the scope and variety of challenges they face every day. That is why Pentair AES has assembled a team of experts with diverse backgrounds in aquaculture, biological and technological engineering, grounded in decades of research and commercial industry application experience. We help our customers run successful operations by providing a responsive service team and the largest selection of equipment and supplies in the industry.
