Jim Donaldson


The mission of my company is to assist existing and start-up aquaculture enterprises achieve their goals by providing experience and innovation for their molluscan shellfish projects. I have been intimately involved in the development of molluscan shellfish hatcheries since their inception in the early 1970's. The design, construction, and hands-on operation and management of state-of-the-art hatcheries and nurseries are my strengths. My background in private hatchery production for over 25 years has enabled me to understand the need to focus on production of shellfish and maximization of profits, while continuing with involvement in and development of cutting-edge technology.

I have been an independent consultant since February 2000, and continue to be involved in numerous projects on a variety of species worldwide. Experience, innovation and a hands-on approach have been the keys to success of most hatcheries in the world. I design systems and teach staff with maximum attention to detail and make sure they have the proper technology to accomplish their goals.
