About Aquaculture Experience

“It takes courage to open up your business to an outsider. This bold step on your part can only be met with accountability, confidentiality and straightforward communication from my part.” – Hans Boon, Aquaculture Experience

Over 30 years of experience in aquafeed and aquaculture
