Gregory J. Fischer

Senior fisheries & aquaculture biologist at McMillen Inc.

"RASTECH 2023 was a great conference and gave me a chance to interact with many of the movers and shakers in Recirculating Aquaculture.  It was great to see and connect with all the pertinent RAS researchers and equipment providers as well that we are working with to help design and build some of the most state-of-the-art facilities doing RAS around North America."

Megan Sorby

Operations manager at Kingfish Maine and editorial advisor to RAStech Magazine

“From site selection and investment appetite from equity firms to brand development and marketing your product, RASTECH focuses on the whole process but specifically on what operators need. It is a fantastic opportunity to network and openly share lessons learned so that we can collectively advance the industry."

Sam HJ Kim

Managing member at Livorna Capital

“We’re going to see an accelerated pace of RAS investments and deployments in the near future. RASTECH is a great event to network, gain perspective, and obtain a better understanding of how we, as investors, can make meaningful investments in this industry.”

Adrian Megay

Sales manager at RK2 Systems

“RASTECH is a great event for our business as it provides us with a means of promoting our brand and technology to RAS operators and project consultants from all parts of the world.”
