The sciences have always entranced Enrique. He was captivated by them, and it’s where he performed best in school. It’s a talent that would follow him past adolescence and into college.
Enrique was an adventurous spirit, attracted to aquatic life, and enjoyed scuba diving. It came as no surprise when Enrique eventually double-majored in marine science and environmental science at Northeastern University. While still a student, Enrique also worked at the New England Aquarium as a diver.
But Enrique was sharp. He began to notice various issues in the way humans farmed fish for consumption, ranging from environmental to risky health practices. His passion pushed him to join the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute as an aquaculture researcher and worked for the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission. There, Enrique studied larval rearing techniques and met David Lasky, who introduced him to Ideal Fish.
With a profound research background and dedication to sustainability, he was perfectly suited for the role of Chief Science Officer. His goal is to evolve Ideal Fish in the most sustainable way possible. He cares deeply about educating the US consumer on the cleanest and most environmentally-friendly way to raise and consume fish. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and two children.
