History

We have been farmers for over 25 years and the past 8 years intensively with tilapia fish, we saw that there is a big gap in the market for fresh fish and started producing fish. We just finished building the facility that can house the fish. Building the facility took longer than expected and placed us over budget with too little operating finances.

That is why we are looking for an investor to join us and help us expand and take the market by force. On-site we have a strong team that understands this system and that has a lot of farming experience.
