Our mission-To alleviate hunger and malnutrition in developing countries by introducing technically proven and culturally congruent fish farming methods on a scale that is sustainable and replicable.
Our vision-To share knowledge, tools and technology to improve the human condition, mitigate dependency and stimulate growth.

Exhibit Day-21

We work to foster local,  small-scale, low input sustainable aquaculture projects for people in equatorial climates. We promote innovative, sustainable fish farming methods that meet these requirements while providing high yield protein and a valuable income source to  families and communities.

Our focus on technology and knowledge transfer leads us to work directly with small holder farmers in developing countries through one-on-one consultations and extensive follow up in order to ensure that our clients are on a path to operating independently and earning profit on their investment.  In addition, we offer consultation services to NGOs interested in setting up fish raising systems.
