Aquatic Farms, Ltd. (AFL) is a privately owned Hawaii Corporation specializing in fisheries and aquaculture development. The company was originally organized to build and operate a commercial freshwater prawn, marine shrimp, oyster and fish farm and hatchery on the island of Oahu. Aquatic Farms owned and successfully operated this multi-species facility for commercial production and aquaculture research. The success of the AFL farm and hatchery led to a number of requests for AFL's technical assistance in planning, designing and managing warm-water aquaculture projects in Hawaii, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Africa. The company's consulting activities grew rapidly in the 1990's and into the new millennium and revenues from consulting services soon exceeded farm production and consulting became the predominant source of revenue. The Hawaii farm, still a functioning commercial facility and base of operations for Aquatic.

  • "If aquaculture is to play a major role in the food security of low income developing countries as a much needed and affordable source of high-quality animal protein, then it is essential that the farmed species be produced using low-cost sustainable farming methods."
