It is my great pleasure to introduce myself and some previous work experiences of commercial scale Aquaponics systems. In a short summary, I started my career in 2008 as a fresh graduate and up to date I have almost 15 years’ work experience. I have been working more than 10 years in the Control Environment Agriculture (CEA), both the hydroponics and Aquaponics along with helping for the companies plus entrepreneurs to build and operate commercial scale aquaponics systems. Academically, I am an MBA holder plus BSc (Agriculture) Special degree.
I specialized in terms of conceptualizing the business with identifying the right product port-folio, designing the right combination of growing methods by analyzing the right appropriate number of fish and plants components of the system. Further, I have experience of helping my previous companies to identify, negotiate and procure right aquaponics materials from overseas manufacturers. I have guided, supervised, worked together to build the system, different parts of the components and I have gained hands-on experience too. As mentioned, I started my career in my country (Sri Lanka) in South Asian region almost 9 years, South Pacific region (Fiji Islands) almost 4 years, Caribbean & US territories (Puerto Rico) from April, 2021 up to date.
Currently, I am working as a Chief Farms Manager in Fusion Farms from February, 2021 but right now I recently reached my country due to some Visa status issues. These days, I am actively searching for an appropriate engagement from my passionate industry in Aquaponics.
