IAS, also known as Integrated Aqua Systems, has been providing consulting, equipment, and product services to most of the world’s largest aquaculture producers for over 32 years.  As a full equipment design and manufacturing company, IAS offers a range of products to address the feeding, lighting and monitoring requirements of aquaculture farms including fin fish,  prawn, and algae.

IAS Products began its life by producing portable, hand-controlled, water-driven feed pellet broadcasters in response to the industry’s concerns over hand feeding, operator health and safety issues. Over the years, we have grown with the industry to provide an ever-expanding range of cost-effective feed delivery, broadcasting, monitoring and control systems, along with a full range of underwater lighting products.  All of our equipment operate using proprietary PLC, wireless control networks, machine vision feed pellet video monitoring, and electronically controlled LED technologies.

Our latest business adventures include:

  • a new subsurface feeding system to address the complex requirements of submerged cages,
  • auto monitoring and control of offshore farm sites with wireless access, and
  • new software controlled high efficiency underwater LED lighting systems.

Lionel president IAS Products

Lionel

Technical Design
In 1986, companies were feeding fish and prawns by hand.  Born with an inquisitive streak, Lionel just couldn’t understand why a self-contained mobile feeder wasn’t available that could evenly distribute feed pellets over water.  To address this glaring shortfall, Lionel formed IAS Products. Lionel needs to know the inner workings and reasons behind equipment design and operating idiosyncrasies.  He works hard to understand the finest details around the issues at hand.  He then applies this tenacious focus on the how’s and why’s to broadcasting and controlling feed pellet delivery.  With a broad knowledge base and a ‘KISS mantra (keep it simple st*p*d), Lionel remains the driving force behind the creation of the modular and effective feed delivery and control systems IAS Products offers.

Tim L.

Operations
Tim tends to ask lots of questions. As Lionel’s business partner since 1988, Tim works hard to clearly identify and understand client equipment needs and expectations.  He then matches this information to components, products, and systems currently produced by IAS. To assist him in this process, Tim brings his other passion in life, Alternate Dispute Resolution, to IAS.  He applies a broad range of effective communication skills to actively listen and identify a client’s equipment operation and performance requirements. This communications style also works well in maintaining the IAS message as the ‘go to company’ for clients with unique site operating challenges and/or new alternative species grow-out needs.  Like Lionel, Tim is a Meccano Set® kind of guy and he loves to get his hand dirty.  Often, after he has clearly identified and communicated a client’s needs to the IAS Team, new ideas start peculating and brainstorming ideas set us on the path to developing new options.  The combination of clear and concise information gathering along with a broad repertoire of components, products and systems ensures that IAS offers significantly shorter product development times, accurate response to client needs, and unparalleled client satisfaction.
