Bigfish SA, Ecuador
After a period of disease and adversities, one of the companies that emerged during the intensive professionalization of Ecuadorian aquaculture is Bigfish SA in Santa Elena, near Salinas. Founded on a culture of best practices, both on technical and on business level, the company set up a successful venture in nauplii sales, larvae sales and feed wholesale activities.
Bigfish SA constantly strives to increase sales volumes and profit margins by demonstrating the cost-effectiveness of its products. Whether it is shrimp nauplii, algae or hatchery diets, Bigfish is committed to doing things right: the company relies on discipline in applying best business practices to win the trust and preference of its customers.
My ingredients for success in aquaculture? Hard work, knowledge of the business, a reputation for excellence and a dedicated team.
