From an interest in food, social policy and media, the path towards the sustainable aquaculture investments sector was not always evident to Aqua-Spark’s co-founder Amy Novogratz.

From the start, however, Novogratz always had a sense of mission with all her work, so the fact she, together with husband Mike Velings, set up the world’s first aquaculture fund is not surprising, nor out of character.

It has now been 10 years since the duo launched Aqua-Spark, and the firm has during the last few years been followed by a handful of other aquaculture, ocean and seafood-focused investment firms.
