Benchmark Holdings, a specialist in manufacturing nutrition and health products for aquaculture, has won a case against Marine-Tech International (MTI) in Thailand for patent infringement.

Hatching and enrichment technologies for artemia

The patents relate to the company’s hatching and enrichment technologies for artemia, which are used as live feeds in marine finfish hatcheries.  

The Sheffield, UK-based biotech company filed a complaint at the Intellectual Property and International Trade Court in Bangkok in 2017 following unfruitful dialogue with MTI. The court awarded damages to Benchmark in November and ordered MTI to cease using Benchmark’s patented technology.
