Xiao Chen is a young, enthusiastic entrepreneur with a passion for aquaculture. During his studies, Xiao did an internship at various fish companies in the Netherlands and abroad and learned the tricks of the trade. Xiao was so fascinated by the world of aquaculture that he decided to start his own venture. The choice fell on the village Urk, the place where the largest fish auction in Europe is located. The ideal location for an international fishmonger.
