description
Aqua-Spark is a global investment fund that invests
in sustainable aquaculture businesses generating
investment returns while creating positive social and environmental impact.

The fund invests in small to medium enterprises that are working towards the production of safe, accessible aquatic life, such as fish, shellfish and plants, in a way that does not harm the health of the planet, and brings a high economic return.

These days, you can’t open a paper without reading about the farm to table movement and locally sourced greens and meats. This is something to be celebrated, as we now have options and can make educated choices about our food. Yet people don’t know how to approach the question of seafood. Is it healthy? What is being overfished? Where did it come from? Is it really sustainable?

So how can we actually feel OK about ordering
seafood off our menus? Simple. Take a page out
of the book of farms that have perfected raising
livestock sustainably – eliminating antibiotics,
streamlining how feed is delivered and in what
amounts, getting rid of nasty chemicals, etc. In other words, we need to get fish farming (or aquaculture) right so we can take the pressure off our oceans.

That's why in 2014 we created Aqua-Spark. Because it’s more important than ever to create a sustainable future for our oceans. That’s why Aqua-Spark is the first investment fund focused on sustainable fish farming.

In this, there are exciting business opportunities.
From innovative feed solutions, disease prevention and treatment, state-of-the-art production technologies to new distribution and branding strategies or anything that can help us grow and provide fish in a sustainable manner.

As more people consume seafood, we have the
power to positively shape the industry while allowing our oceans to recover. In this case, doing good also makes for sound financial opportunities.
We have built a board full of stellar people, a team
of professionals with decades of financial and
investing experience and an international network
of more than fifty of the best aquaculture experts
out there. All this has given us access to hundreds of aquaculture business opportunities, and created an investment pipeline, which is continually growing.

On top of all this lives our fund model. Tailored to
aquaculture and maximizing benefits for investors
– It is a model that is made to grow with the food
demand and the overgrowing population.

It is clear that we don’t have the luxury of the
decades it has taken traditional agricultural farm
operations to get on track.

With aquaculture, we need to be investing in these qualities right now if we’re going to make meaningful strides in protecting sea life that is under duress while still feeding billions of people around the world.
