Iowa’s First is a family-ran operation located in central Iowa. We believe Iowa is an ideal location to work with other farmers to provide a fresh, sustainable product from America’s heartland. Using a recirculating system called “Opposing Flows Technology” we believe Iowa has the potential to be a leading competitor in aquaculture. Raising an Australian sea bass called Barramundi (Lates Calcarifer) Iowa’s First takes pride in producing a fresh product year round in an environmentally friendly, sustainable setting. Barramundi scored extremely high on the NuVal Score of Seafood and Meat, and was named “Best Choice” for sustainability by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program, making Barramundi one of the healthiest fish you eat.
