Our green way
We are committed to sustainability at every stage, from the initial creation of alternative solutions to extraction, to the development of the end product, to the production processes and the care of the natural resource, to guaranteed traceability and how we handle our waste and, not the least, we are committed to how we comply with packaging standards.
Cruelty-Free: We are recognized leaders in the development, application and documentation of an animal welfare protocol for invertebrate aquaculture.
Circular Economy and Restoration: We practice restorative aquaculture; In our processes we use Undaria algae, an invasive alga which has altered the Patagonian maritime ecosystems, we use fishing waste and transform it into our raw material. We allocate part of our waste to reduce Patagonian desertification, thus promoting the circular economy and the restoration of the Patagonian ecosystem.
Integrated Multitrophic Aquaculture (IMTA): We use the wisdom of nature, incorporating food into our aquaculture chain farming system, reducing the use of seawater.
We work in alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals:
We are convinced of the value of collaborative knowledge and promote gender equality, with more than 70% of our staff are females.

Her undergraduate thesis focused on one of those starfish and in 2004 she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences from the National University of Patagonia San Juan Bosco. During her work with her doctorate she worked in the Neuronal Plasticity Laboratory at the Leloir Institute Foundation and at the same time began the study of sea urchins in conjunction with Dr. Diaz de Vivar. She collaborated in the founding of the Latin American Echinoderm Network and organized, together with Dr. Martin Brogger and Dr. Diaz de Vivar, the first Latin American Congress on echinoderms in 2011.
Starting with her appointment as a CONICET Researcher in 2013, Tamara accentuated her interest in aquaculture technology and initiated new research projects in technological development. The study of secondary metabolites produced by marine organisms has accompanied her throughout her entire career and the Covid-19 pandemic clearly served to highlight the end purpose of her research: the search for health benefits from aquaculture. Tamara is an independent researcher at CONICET and Researcher professor at UNPSJB.
She is a member of FIRMA (Ibero-American Forum of Mariculture and Aquaculture), is a Hatch Blue woman, a member of Refacua CONICET, ASTRAL, WISE, amongst other organizations and bodies. Her research also involves animal welfare, specifically regarding marine invertebrates as applied to both research activities and production activities. Tamara has more than 30 scientific publications, and has made more than 50 presentations at congresses, conferences, and workshops both in Argentina and abroad.
She is an undisputed global leader in her areas of study both in sea urchin aquaculture in Argentina and Latin American but also as regards ethics in experimentation with invertebrates. In the latter field, Tamara co-leads innovation and research together with Dr. Augusto Crespi-Abril.

TECHNICAL AND PRODUCTION TEAM
The scientific and medical evidence continues to mount as we further research into the benefits of sea urchins for human health.
At Promarine we cultivate the native species of the Atlantic Patagonian sea urchin, Arbacia Dufresnii, and obtain the and we obtain the powerful molecules known as spinochomes of the sea urchin from their unfertilized caviar. This repertoire of molecules contained in unfertilized sea urchin caviar has extraordinary antioxidant, revitalizing, anti-inflammatory and immune system promoter power.
The sea urchin has innate immunity, the spinochromes in its cells act to defend them from viruses and bacteria. Also, in the caviar, the spinochromes fulfill the function of providing them with protection from UV rays, allowing them to live longer.
Powders from the shell and spines of the sea urchin have been used in oriental medicine for centuries. During the 1980s, the USSR devoted many efforts to search for natural marine products and found that the molecules that make up the immune system of sea urchins, known as marine polyphenols (or “spinochromes”), have an antioxidant power that surpasses the rest of the antioxidants known on the world, and have numerous beneficial properties for human health.
It is scientifically proven that it acts at cellular level, taking care of the body from the inside out
