What inspired you to become involved in the seafood industry?

With demand rising and many marine fish stocks already overfished, nearly half of all seafood now comes from aquaculture, which has grown at a double-digit clip for decades. Aquaculture has one big advantage over land animals, which is we feed them a lot less. So it’s an ideal animal protein source to feeding the growing world population, with the least demand on the earth’s resources.

When was TOBA Tilapia established and how many employees are there?

Our TOBA Tilapia fully integrated operation was established in 2013 and we currently have more than 800 employees.
