FLORIDA - Neptune Industries, Inc. has announced that John Holder of British Columbia, Canada has joined the Board of Directors of the Company's newly formed Canadian subsidiary, Aqua Biologics of Canada, Ltd.

Mr. Holder is a registered professional biologist in the Province of British Columbia and he graduated from the University of Guelph in 1973. He has had extensive experience with land based and ocean production systems for salmon, and has provided his expertise to the salmon and aquaculture industry for over 30 years. He is on the advisory board of Hatchery Magazine, a past director of the Aquaculture Association of Canada as well as a contributing writer to Northern Aquaculture. He has worked and consulted for aquaculture companies in six continents and he has his own consulting firm, JLH Consulting, Inc.

Aqua Biologics of Canada, Ltd. intends to establish coldwater pilot operations with its eco-friendly, closed containment system, Aqua-SphereTM. Salmon farmers in British Columbia, as well as other areas, are being urged to transition from net pen farming to closed containments systems.

Mr. Ernest Papadoyianis, Chairman, stated, "I have known Mr. Holder for many years through our mutual associations in the aquaculture industry, as well as our work together in pursuits of various grants. He is highly regarded in our industry, and I am extremely pleased that he has chosen to be a part of our Company, and to provide his expertise to our Canadian operations."

Based in Boca Raton, Florida, Neptune Industries, Inc. has developed a scalable, modular aquaculture technology called Aqua-SphereTM and Aqua-CellTM that successfully address the environmental concerns of most aquaculture operations by controlling and recycling all waste products, while ensuring the production of the highest quality fish at an affordable price. The company currently operates the Blue Heron Aqua Farms in Florida City, FL and is a leading producer of hybrid striped bass, which it markets internationally as Everglades Striped BassTM. The Company is also in development of an advanced dietary nutritional component called Ento-ProteinTM, a high quality sustainable protein derived from insects, and is intended to be a replacement for the scarce fish meal now used in fish and animal diets.
