(MTI) is a consulting company for mariculture.

Mariculture is farming of saltwater organisms either at sea or on land
MTI, Inc. was founded in 1984 as a Florida corporation by Michael F. McMaster for the purpose of commercial mariculture farming in Florida and elsewhere. Mr. McMaster is a very accomplished marine biologist with 48 years of mariculture experience. Most notably is both the UN/FAO scientific recognition as their appointed world expert for farming the Florida Pompano and secondly, Mr. McMaster has been independently engaged in successful commercial mariculture businesses of his own for 48 years of which all have been solely self funded.
