Project Main Details

Aqua Spark  
We are launching a social impact fund focussed on Aquaculture. The video will live on the website and be used at conferences to pitch to investors and media. It's a very different kind of investment fund so the vibe should be a bit more casual and human, with the sense of adventure. The video will be animated. The full script is below.

Script Details

It's a very different kind of investment fund so the vibe should be a bit more casual and human, with the sense of adventure.  
[The film begins at a leisurely pace. We’re telling a story. Perhaps an animated fisherman, alone against the sea with a single fish on the line and a single star in the evening sky. As the film progresses, the scene morphs to represent the growing numbers, impact, pace, etc. of the story.]

Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day.

Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.

(IDEA: BIG PAUSE with something beautiful/inspiring to look at (perhaps lone fisherman joyful catches a gorgeous, healthy, energetic, flip flopping fish? Let viewer enjoy for a second & feel inspired)

Now, imagine working with an entire village to raise FARMS of fish in healthy, sustainable ways.

(IDEA: Could pan out past the lone fisherman to expose his entire community working on a fish farm.)

THIS is the potential of aquaculture

[Here the pace and music begin to pick up speed as a series of animated info graphics are cleverly built into scenes described by the voiceover.]

With global population on its way to reaching 10 billion within our lifetime, a sustainable source of healthy protein is going to be crucial.

And the appetite for fish is growing.

[Graphic of “Global demand for fish has been increasing at twice the rate of the world’s population annually since the 1960s” World Health Organization.]

Our oceans can't handle the demand. Without change, they will soon be depleted.

[Graphic: *85% of the world’s fisheries at their limits (WWF number)

*Atlantic Cod, Haddock, Southern and Atlantic Bluefin Tuna, and Albacore stocks are currently depleted (FAO)

*Without change, all species face depletion by 2048 (WWF)]

Aquaculture can help reverse this trend.

And that’s not all.

Aquaculture’s potential extends beyond fish as food, with new uses for marine life emerging daily.


· Biofuels Fatty acids from algae are being used to power cars

· Pharmaceuticals Proteins proven to halt tumour growth

· Nutraceuticals Antioxidants lower cholesterol and blood pressure]

Improved technologies and feed practises mean today’s aquaculture farmers produce greater yields and healthier, happier fish, oysters, and algae than ever before.

Aquaculture is now the world’s most energy-efficient, ocean-friendly means of producing high-quality animal protein.

And what does that mean?

We can meet the world’s growing demand.

All that’s needed is a spark.

[Perhaps here we find ourselves back at that single star burning against the dark.]


********* is a global investment fund focused exclusively on global aquaculture opportunities with small- to medium-sized businesses capable of delivering strong financial returns combined with positive ecological and social impact.


We believe in the power of entrepreneurship. We seek long-term, minority stakes in our partners to help them succeed, not to own them.

to make sure that this fish story has a happy ending for everyone.
