DALLAS, TX – The Crosby Group, the global leader in lifting, rigging and material handling hardware, is proud to support the Advancing the Quality and Understanding of America Aquaculture (AQUAA) Act of 2020 recently introduced by US Senators Roger Wicker, R-Miss., Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, and Marco Rubio, R-Fla. The Act proposes a balanced framework for the development of offshore aquaculture in the United States with a process to further grow coastal economies while minimizing environmental impact.

“The Crosby Group has a long history of delivering rigging and mooring solutions for the aquaculture industry,” said Robert Desel, CEO of The Crosby Group. “We are greatly encouraged by bipartisan activity in this space to drive US aquaculture forward in a safe and sustainable way.”

The Crosby Group, through its Gunnebo Industries branded products, provides a range of chain, shackles and mooring components specifically designed for the aquaculture market. The portfolio incorporates unique features for faster and easier installation in harsh conditions, lowering the operational costs for end users. The products are manufactured and tested to the highest and most demanding standards globally to extend product life and increase safety for both personnel and the environment.
