Future Oceans was founded in 2008 by Australian surfer, sailor and entrepreneur James Turner. After having spent 18 years in Europe establishing successful travel and sports marketing companies in Switzerland, the UK and Italy, in 2001 James returned to Australia.
When James discovered that over 300,000 whales and dolphins were drowning in fishing nets every year and that scientific evidence showed that the problem can be solved using Pingers, he was compelled to act, and Future Oceans was born.
For the past fourteen years, James has developed relationships with government agencies and representatives, scientists and researchers, fishing associations and environmental groups, with the sole mission of increasing the use of Pingers worldwide.
With the support of long-time friend and business partner, Hanspeter Gubler, Future Oceans leads the world in Pinger design and manufacturing.
Pingers are among the world’s fastest growing marine environmental industries.
Future Oceans develops its Pinger technology with a leading innovation and technology company, Nextlab, which is based at the University of Technology in Sofia.
Nextlab was founded by Prof. Dr. Nikolay (Nik) lliev, 2017.

Prof. lliev is supported by team of senior PhD and graduating students who are selected to join Nextlab to undertake master’s degrees.
After many years of success at Datecs, Prof. lliev turned to collaborating with Future Oceans and other organizations focussed urgent marine and terrestrial environmental challenger.
