A rafting vacation in 2007 on the Firth River in Canada’s North brought together lifelong entrepreneur Brad Marchant and well-known environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki. They didn’t know each other before the trip, but their conversations during that vacation – about the sustainability of aquaculture feed – planted the seeds for a business idea.
Dr. Suzuki has gained international recognition as an advocate for the environment. While he and Brad were fishing together, he shared his concerns about the depletion of wild fish stocks and their use as aquaculture feed.
Brad asked him, “What would be better?”, and David pointed to the end of the fishing rod, “How about insects and their larvae?” And thus began the journey of Enterra and the genesis of Renewable Food for Animals and Plants™.
