Til-Aqua's first thoughts and plans on tilapia production started back in 1978, when Eric Bink (founder of Til-Aqua) visited the Boabab Farm in Kenya and had his first encounter with tilapia. He realized the potential role that tilapia could play in helping to tackle the worlds food shortage, by offering an economical and sustainable source of high quality animal protein. There and then, he decided to be part of the development of this industry, and 20 years later, Til-Aqua International was founded.

As an ecologist, Eric was convinced from the very beginning, of pursuing the production of tilapia in a sustainable and ecological manner, avoiding hormone treatments and aiming to develop a complete natural process for its production.

From starting in the basement of his house, Til-Aqua now has three production sites, with a total capacity of over 12,000,000 NMT larvae/year.
