Passion, love, interest… these are three words that slip into the conversation when you ask Thue Holm why aquaculture. But, let’s be honest, these are not words that are alien to us when we ask other people in the industry the same question. However, when he tells it, an idea of a perfect recipe forms in our minds, a sort of master formula, the kind that makes three good ingredients become something much better, nearly irresistible.
Passion for fish, love for food, and interest in business are the three main ingredients that Thue has been able to simmer throughout his career, but they are not the only ones. Sustainability, innovation and technology are also important elements of a recipe that is seasoned by continuous learning, travel – especially if there was a fish farm to visit along the way – and a liking of teamwork. He may still be checking the seasoning of that recipe, but when Atlantic Sapphire‘s CTO and co-founder hits the right spot, he’s sure to keep on cooking. He knows he has time, and Thue Holm doesn’t seem to be the type to settle for just one dish on the menu.
