Marine - Underwater Lighting, Cameras and Cables

BGB Marine is a designer and manufacturer of a wide range of underwater lighting and camera monitoring solutions.

BGB evolved following the acquisition of the commercial interests of Aquabeam Ltd, owning the design, manufacture and sale of Aquabeam Aquaculture Products. Aquabeam Ltd supplied underwater lighting & camera systems throughout the UK for over 30 years. Since the acquisition the product portfolio has expanded with new developments.

We manufacture, design and distribute underwater lighting and cameras for a range of industries. Primarily BGB lights such as Pisces 400, Pisces 1000, Turtle and FR Cameras are sold to the Aquaculture market (fish farming).
