Company Summary

ACT has developed proven proprietary methodologies for commercial scale cultivation of sustainable live coral products. We will manufacture products for aquariums, decoration, jewelry, pharmaceuticals, and global coral reef restoration. These markets are currently satisfied largely by wild harvested imports which contribute to global coral reef health decline, and increased cost to the end user. ACT will provide a healthy, profitable alternative.
