Canada: Aquaponic pioneer Marc Laberge sells business, expansion slated for 2015Canada's pioneering commercial aquaponic farm, M.L. Aquaponics Inc (Cultures Aquaponiques M.L. Inc) has been bought out. "I could not be happier,” says Marc Laberge. “I have sold my business and teamed up with a brilliant new partner. I will be vice-president, with shares in the new company."
The team will be building new greenhouses in Québec this spring, based on Laberge's experience with commercial aquaponics. His new partner, Mr. Louis Chapdelaine, a recently retired engineer, managed one of Canada's largest construction firms. "He has a mission to make a difference in the way we grow, buy and consume our foods," said Laberge. "Consuming locally grown foods is high on our agenda. Mr. Chapdelaine and I both share the same opinions about pesticides and water economy, and we plan to make a difference."

The new facilities will use today's most advanced technologies while remaining organic and chemical free. Also on the agenda is bringing rooftop aquaponics to major cities in Canada to provide fresh organic fish and vegetables without having to truck the food from thousands of kilometres away.
