Don Bishop Don Bishop is an Aquaculture specialist committed to integrating leading edge technology with practical operations. To that end he has founded Bishop Aquatic Technologies, Inc., which operates as Fukui North America (FNA), a rapidly growing Canadian global trading firm specializing in the design, manufacture, and distribution of goods for a number of industries, primarily within the Aquaculture industry, and Bishop Aquatic Technologies (BAT). BAT is a consulting group made up of a team of people whom Don has encountered over the years, and who understand that aquaculture is a business which needs the support of science and technology to thrive.

Don is recognized as a positive force who will continue to stay on top of market trends, scientific data, and future shifts to continue to build, maintain, and sustain a leadership position in the Aquaculture industry.

Currently, there is a stumbling block in the industry; a great deal of different types of aquaculture gear is unavailable to growers because of manufacturing logistics. Don's expertise in import and export development has helped the industry take its next step forward by sourcing gear from around the world and making it readily available. Within the finfish and shellfish industry it was recognized that a number of growers are not aware of what's available in equipment design and how it affects the bottom line.

Don's experience enables him to offer strong support in market development, technology transfer, outsourcing, and manufacturing on a selective basis to service the needs of the industry. Don can help match the labour culture specific to your area with the technology transfer and applicable gear that is available. Because of his manufacturing and distribution background, Don is able to marry the needs of the aquaculture industry to the solutions already existing in other industries.

Don has been a keynote speaker for many Aquaculture organizations including Aquaculture Coalition at MIT Cambridge, University of Rhode Island, Newfoundland Aquaculture Association, Pacific Oyster Growers Association, B.C. Shellfish Growers Association, Aquaculture Association of Canada, Florida Aquaculture Association, Nova Scotia Aquaculture Association, European Aquaculture Society, Nova Scotia Aquaculture College, and international conferences such as Aqua Mexico 2000 and Aqua Nor 2000. Don also works closely with the scientific community for continuing research and new technologies.

Don is a contributing writer to the US Publication Fish Farming News, the Canadian Atlantic Fish Farming, and French Canadian publications Peche Impact, and the Mexican publication Panorama Acuicola. In all of the above he specializes in the business applications of gear selection for aquaculture.
