Bringing expertise across Farming, Aquaculture and seafood together for a more sustainable future


Mike Webb started his career in the building industry before moving over to the world of aquaculture as a commercial fisherman in 2006 driven by his life long love of fishing. In 2008 Mike set up the NMC, creating a gateway for universities and institutions to have access to marine species promoting education and a greater awareness of whats in our oceans and how to protect them. 
Mike still carries his passion for building today and has built the NMC and DCF units in portland port from the ground up.


Richard Prickett has been involved in marine aquaculture since 1974. His experience is world-wide and has included working on many of the commercial species now in production such as turbot, sea bream, sea bass, flounder, sole, cod and sub tropical species such as cobia, snapper and Pacific threadfin. Today he is working mainly on cleaner fish production for lice control in the farmed salmon industry as well as working with the production of seaweeds and shellfish.


Following some 20 years in, on, or under the water in Portland Harbour clearing it of explosives and developing Quest Marines base in Portland Port, Hugh is now semi-retired and able to grow his interest in Aquaculture. He has signed a 10 year lease with Portland Harbour Authority to grow seaweed in the area of the harbour approved for aquaculture.  In July the licence was expanded to include bi-valve shellfish to enable the company to continue its promising trials in integrating seaweed with filter feeding shellfish so that both benefit. 


Nigel initially trained as a chef before becoming a fish wholesaler, processor and exporter based at Brixham Fish Market. In 2005, he bought Abbotsbury oyster farm and bar, improving the oyster farm production system and forming the highly successful Crab House Café which has won several awards both regionally and nationally. He is the author of the Crabhouse café recipe book.

Nigel joined Jurassic Seafarms as a shareholder in 2018 and is particularly looking forward to developing and marketing seaweed products for the Company.
